Wilson-Raybould, who sponsored the legislation, tweeted that the Senate vote marked "an historic milestone for progressive policy in Canada". "Our plan to legalise [and] regulate marijuana just passed the Senate". The bill previously passed in the House of Commons.
Speaking today, Trudeau said: "We have been talking about this since well before we formed government".
Canadian marijuana companies like Canopy Growth Corp, Aphria Inc, Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences ETF and Aurora Cannabis Inc have been at the center of investor frenzy surrounding attempts to legalise marijuana for recreational use nationwide.
That year, the Dutch decriminalised the sale of small amounts of cannabis - less than five grams - and allowed each person to legally grow five plants for personal use.
Canada is only the second country in the world - and the first G7 nation - to implement legislation to permit a nationwide marijuana market. Commercial marijuana production will be licensed by the federal government, while retail distribution of marijuana will be regulated by individual provinces.
U.S. federal law prohibits the cultivation, sale and use of marijuana.
The date for legalising is now expected to be early or mid-September.

In the neighbouring U.S., nine states and the District of Columbia have legalised marijuana.
Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas Taylor and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice Bill Blair speak to reporters following a vote on Bill C-45 inOttawa on Monday.
Marijuana will not be sold in the same location as alcohol or tobacco.
The minimum legal age to buy and consume marijuana has been set federally at 18, but some provinces have chosen to set it at 19.
Advocates argued putting the limit at 21 would encourage a black market and drive youths into the hands of criminals.
"A fearless move on the part of the government", he told CBC.
Conservative senators remained resolutely opposed to legalization, however, and predicted passage of C-45 will not meet the government's objectives.
