Ganja now legal as Canada allows recreational use

0

Canada became the first industrialised nation to legalize recreational cannabis on Wednesday, but a lawful buzz will be hard to come by in its biggest cities like Toronto and Vancouver, which will have no stores open.

Weed enthusiasts in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada`s easternmost province, kicked off the first permissible sales at midnight. Over 100 people braved the cold and wind in the province`s capital St. John`s, lining up outside a Tweed-branded store owned by Canopy Growth Corp., the world`s most recognised cannabis producer.

Canopy`s Chief Executive Bruce Linton rang in the first sales to residents Ian Power and Nikki Rose.
