legalize marijuana

Canada on Wednesday became the second country to legalize marijuana for recreational use following Uruguay whose pharmacies started selling the drug last year. The north American nation believes the move will help take profits away from organised crime.

Government pot retailers opened from Newfoundland to British Columbia, jubilant Canadians waited for hours in line to buy the first state-approved joints.

“I have never felt so proud to be Canadian,” said Marco Beaulieu, 29, a janitor, as he waited with friends outside a government cannabis retailer in the east end of Montreal. “Canada is once again a progressive global leader. We have gay rights, feminism, abortion rights, and now we can smoke pot without worrying police are going to arrest us.”
