Screened at U.S. border Canadians who are honest about using marijuana could be banned from America Feds to announce plan to pardon Canadians convicted of simple possession of pot

Canopy Growth CEO Bruce Linton, left to right, provides the receipt for the first legal cannabis for recreation use sold in Canada to Nikki Rose and Ian Power at the Tweed shop on Water Street in St. John's N.L.at 12:01 am NDT on Wednesday October 17, 2018. "I'm just going to save it forever", Power said. The goal is to better reflect society's changing opinion about marijuana and bring black market operators into a regulated system.

When it arrives at your house, Canada Post will undertake age-verification checks if you appear to be under the age of 25-years-old, as you have to be 19-years-old to legally order cannabis. The most populous province is working on its regulations and does not expect any stores to open until next spring.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection invited Canadian media to a conference call on Tuesday so officials could reiterate that marijuana remains illegal under U.S. federal law and that those who are caught at the border with pot are subject to arrest and prosecution.

In a report from the Toronto Star's Ottawa Bureau Bruce Campion-Smith writes that the federal government will announce Wednesday that it intends to "move quickly to grant pardons to Canadians with past criminal convictions for simple possession of pot under 30 grams".

By his estimate there are hundreds of thousands of Canadians that carry personal possession charges for marijuana.

Nokia X7 aka 7.1 Plus official now
Software-wise, the smartphone boots Android Oreo out of the box but will get Android 9.0 Pie soon, the company said at the event. You might be able to get the same piece of hardware elsewhere later-we expect it to launch as the Nokia 7 .1 Plus outside China.

Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for almost 20 years.

That means provinces and territories will determine where it is sold, where stores operate and are located, along with the limits for possession, the minimum age required for purchase and consumption, restrictions on public use and additional requirements and prohibitions for growing pot at home.

Six, including Quebec, will make pot available through government-run stores.

But critics say it will lead to an increase in deaths on Canada's roads.

"It's been hectic", said Roseanne Dampier, who joined her husband - both former welders - in opening Alternative Greens, a licensed store in Edmonton, Alberta. Tobin, a longtime convenience store owner, said they will be cutting a ribbon and cake. "That's not even paying someone's salary".
