Today Canada legalized recreational marijuana, this may change how countries see the industry nation wide.
Pot retailers are excited to open their doors for the first time as customers line up to purchase.
“Legalization of cannabis is the largest public policy shift this country has experienced in the past five decades,” said Mike Farnworth, British Columbia’s minister of public safety.
“It’s an octopus with many tentacles, and there are many unknowns,” he added. “I don’t think that when the federal government decided to legalize marijuana it thought through all of the implications.”
