"All the years of activism paid off. Cannabis is legal in Canada and everyone should come to Canada and enjoy our cannabis". The House of Commons voted in favour of the C-45 Bill, which is also called the Cannabis Act.

It marks an historic day as adult Canadians will be able to legally smoke recreational marijuana after almost a century-long ban.

In total, Statistics Canada says 5.4 million Canadians will buy cannabis from legal dispensaries in 2018 - about 15% of the population. Pot enthusiasts in the province will have the biggest choice of shops, with 22 outlets expected to be operating between 9 a.m. local time to 2 a.m., and at least some that opened at midnight on Wednesday.

"I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall". Tobin, a longtime convenience store owner, said they will be cutting a ribbon and cake.

While these regions are clearly taking full advantage of the Cannabis Law, residents of Ontario, including Toronto, will have to wait until Spring 2019 for stores to open.

"For nearly a century, criminal enterprises had complete control of this market, 100 percent of its production and distribution and they profited in the billions of dollars each year".

Smoking or vaping of cannabis is allowed in public places where tobacco is permitted in many provinces or territories, but others such as Manitoba have a ban on public consumption. A household can also grow only four plants and anything over the limit could attract hefty penalty. "There are health concerns".
