Canada took this decision because most of the majority wanted this. I don’t understand why many people are against this law? Where have you been earlier then everything was only on a discussion level? Personally, I am not an active smoker, but I really like this law to legalize recreational marijuana. The most important now is the government to keep the market clean with good products. The government also should keep control of the people who grow marijuana inside. For example, there is already the way of getting marijuana in DC legal. You can read more on urbanaroma. So, this law is just the beginning and is a lot to discuss and work upon, but still they made a correct decision.
