Moments in Cannabis History: Canada Legalizes Recreational Cannabis

The Canadian Senate voted to legalize Cannabis Tuesday, by an impressive 2 to 1 margin. The bold move makes our reputedly polite, maple syrup-guzzling northern neighbors the first G-7 nation to legalize cannabis on a federal level. That qualification is necessary since tiny Uruguay legalized a few years ago, but it’s really just another way of saying that it’s the first large, powerful, heavily industrialized nation to make the leap. They are the second nation ever to fully legalize.
