Canada’s parliament has passed a law legalising the recreational use of marijuana nationwide. On Tuesday, The Cannabis Act was passed following a 52-29 vote in the Senate. The bill controls and regulates how the plant can be grown, distributed, and sold. Canadians will be able to buy and consume cannabis legally as early as this September. The country is the second worldwide to legalise recreational use.
Uruguay became the first country to do so in December 2013.
