Residents of Canada will be able to use marijuana without the worry of law enforcement, as the country’s senate has passed a bill legalizing the recreational use of the drug.

Canada becomes the second country to legalize the drug nationwide, following Uruguay in 2013.

The country’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that people will be able to use the drug legally come October 17.

According to ABC News, the legislation allows for people over the age of 18 to carry and use up to 30 grams of dried cannabis in public.

It also allows for residents to cultivate up to four cannabis plants at home, with dried cannabis and cannabis oil set to go on sale later this year.

    ehhh…because Nigeria that hasn’t allowed it is doing great ehn?

    Wait, which country that has banned marijuana is actually robust? (given that they are a democracy).

    It has so many beneficial uses. Let’s not limit it to what we know (smoking) but how it can help people from seizures, cancer patients, hemp clothing and items.

    Let’s see where this goes. I believe though, that removing the mystery surrounding a social vice strips it of power. Now, supply will increase, demand should go down. There is no data that proves that countries where it is banned have the lowest usage. I kind of liken it to legalizing abortion. People are doing these things anyway, why not bring it to light and give it attention?
