Marijuana Legalization Coming to Canada?

On Monday, Canadians elected Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister and the Liberal Party into a majority government. Now, the it's entirely possible that marijuana legalization is on the horizon.

US News reports:

And now, supporters and political scientists say, the party likely will make good on a campaign pledge to make the Great White North the world’s next country to allow cannabis for recreational use.

"When can Canadians expect you to legalize pot if you're elected?" a reporter asked Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau in September. "We're going to get started on that right away," he said.

Trudeau takes office next month, and his government is expected to deliberate on the precise outlines for legalization before offering a proposal to Parliament.

“Oh, it’s going to happen,” Canadian Sen. Larry Campbell of the Liberal Party, a former mayor of Vancouver, tells U.S. News. “Certainly within the next four years, but I suspect a closer time frame is two [years].”

Very interesting. While it's not uncommon for Americans between the ages of 18 and 20 who live near the border to go to Canada for alcohol, it will be interesting to see how the country would capitalize on the near-certainty of pot tourism.
