After a tense day of uncertainty over whether the Liberals could garner enough support from independent senators to defeat a Conservative effort to kill the bill, Bill C-45 passed second reading on Thursday night.

It was a "second reading" or vote on the bill in principle, and a late-hour victory that had appeared far from certain for a key Liberal promise, coming only after a memo went out late Wednesday to travelling independent senators to return for the crucial vote.

Independent Sen. Tony Dean, who sponsored the government's bill in the Senate, urged Conservatives against relying on statistical disputes about youth use of cannabis, "whether that places Canada first, second or third in the world, we should be anxious about it". This concern was shared by Brown administration officials who told a California Cannabis Industry Association conference in Sacramento this week that "they are committed to making the regulatory changes needed to help the industry achieve success", in the Bee's words.

Conservative whip, Sen. Don Plett, said that proves the independents really make up a partisan caucus that's whipped to do the government's bidding, whereas he called the Conservatives "the most independent caucus" even though they too voted as a bloc.

"I fully expect that senators from different sides will discuss amendments and that these will be considered seriously by the various committees", he said.

The leader of the government in the Senate, Peter Harder says he's pleased with the outcome. "There are many issues to be dealt with", he said.

Well the votes are now in and 44-29 senate vote, it looks like Bill-C45 is going to live on.

Just two months ago, Granite State Representatives passed House Bill 656, the legalization of marijuana possession and home cultivation, by a vote of 207-139.

That was seen as a subtle warning that they should not attempt to thwart the will of Canadians or the government they elected.
