Canada legalizing Marijuana in 2018 (Article)
Canadians should be able to smoke marijuana legally by July 1, 2018, a senior government official said Monday.
The Canadian government is expected to follow the advice of a marijuana task force headed by former Health Minister Anne McLellan as well as the advice of former Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair, who is the parliamentary secretary to the justice minister. Blair has been visiting police departments across the country.
The task force recommended adults be allowed to carry up to 30 grams of pot for recreational purpose and grow up to four plants.
Canada would be the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition of recreational marijuana.

Uruguay in South America is the only nation to legalize recreational pot. ~ (excerpt from article dated 3/27/17)
