According to government statistics, as many as 4.6 million Canadians will consume an estimated total 655 metric tons of cannabis annually by 2018, spending an estimated Can$4.2 billion to Can$6.2 billion (USD $3.15-4.65 billion) each year.
"Canadians, including 21 percent of youth and 30 percent of young adults, continue to use cannabis at among the highest rates in the world", former Toronto police chief Bill Blair, now parliamentary secretary to Canada's justice minister and attorney general, told a news conference. The proposed Cannabis Act introduces penalties for two new criminal offenses: "Giving or selling cannabis to youth" and "using youth to commit a cannabis-related offense".
The federal Liberals tabled a bill in the House of Commons at noon on Thursday (April 13) to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in Canada. "We have a responsibility to act as expeditiously as we can".
"Canada's current system of marijuana prohibition does not work".
In the US, meanwhile, lawmakers introduced bicameral legislation this month aimed at reining in Washington's own pot prohibition. But when Mr. Trudeau's bill passes as expected, Canada will become only the second nation, after Uruguay, to completely legalize marijuana as a consumer product.
With legalization in a growing number of our own states and now an entire major neighboring country ending prohibition, its going to be increasingly hard for drug warriors in the Trump administration to meaningfully roll back our gains, said Tom Angell of the pro-legalization group Marijuana Majority. Please support our efforts. Canadian provinces can raise that minimum age higher if they'd like.
His Conservative counterpart, Colin Carrie, wondered aloud how exactly Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plans to keep the other governments at bay.

The federal government will provide minimum conditions, but the provinces could set more rules about distribution and sale on top of those.
The marijuana will be available by way of a tightly controlled and regulated supply chain.
There are a lot of unanswered questions about today's legislation, such as where marijuana will be sold, how much it will costs, what percentage of the price will be tax and whether people will still opt for under-the-counter marijuana if it is significantly cheaper than the government-sanctioned variety.
"It is important that Canadians are aware of possible actions they may face upon attempted entrance into the United States if they possess or have residue of marijuana".
The legislation to legalize cannabis is reported to be coming on Thursday of this week, providing Canadians with a better idea of how the national system will operate.
Canada's proposed legislation follows success at US ballot boxes previous year in several states, including recreational marijuana laws in Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, and California. While eight states plus the District of Columbia have already legalized recreational marijuana here, it remains illegal at the federal level.
