Senate Passes Pot Bill

Recreational marijuana will be legal within months.

The Senate has passed the federal pot bill C-45, meaning recreational marijuana will be legal within 2-3 months.

The vote passed 52-29, with two senators abstaining.

Reaction to the passage of the pot bill was split down partisan lines:

On Twitter, Justin Trudeau said “It’s been too easy for our kids to get marijuana – and for criminals to reap the profits. Today, we change that. Our plan to legalize & regulate marijuana just passed the Senate.”

Conservative Senator Linda Frum called it a “Sad day for Canada’s kids.”

The legislation has a 2-3 month buffer period, and it will be up to the federal cabinet to decide exactly when marijuana becomes legal.

While the Trudeau Liberals had once hoped that legalizing marijuana would be a key part of their election plan, the issue repeatedly ranks very low on Canadians list of priorities, and other scandals/failures have cut into Trudeau’s support and turned many Canadians against him.

Like a typical leftist Trudeau rolls out the narrative that he is so caring for kids, nothing more than projected nonsense.

On Twitter, Justin Trudeau said “It’s been too easy for our kids to get marijuana – and for criminals to reap the profits. Today, we change that. Our plan to legalize & regulate marijuana just passed the Senate.” Does this imbecile actually believe this? Pot will be priced higher than the black market therefore the black market will flourish. As far as kids getting it, this will change nothing, they will still get it. The only good thing about trudo is that he admitted to smoking it & passing it around at ‘dinner parties’. The US federal border has ZERO… Read more »

I felt MAYBE the senate would come thru and hope they would reckomen abolishing the recreational use, but I guess all the senator that were kicked out by the Liberals they would give a SOBER and responsible decision?? But I guess a once a Liberal always a Liberal, do they really give damn about the Canadian people espicaly the young adults?? Need to get back to doing away with the senators we certainly are not get what we pay for, and got to clean up the clearly abuse of the federal elected members who should be able to vote freely… Read more »

Great not only are the liberals making Canada stink, it’s going to smell like skunk and all of us non smokers get to choke on it.

How will everyone being able to legally smoke pot stop anyone handing off to kids under 25? Are there major fines included in this pot obsession for those who to give to kids?
