Looks like our neighbors up north are turning over a new leaf, eh? Sorry. In a move considered to be "way chill" by stoners all over the world, Canada's government is introducing legislation that would make it the first G7 nation to legalize marijuana. For those unaware of the term, G7 is not a fast car, nor the much-anticipated sequel to Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, but rather a group of seven countries organized to facilitate economic cooperation. They include France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, the United States, and -- of course -- Canada.
Confusingly hunky Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced that he will be following through on his campaign promise to legalize pot across the land. In Trudeau’s mandate letter to Canada's Justice Minister, Jody Wilson-Raybould’s, he included a provision saying that the justice minister should work to “create a federal-provincial-territorial process that will lead to the legalization and regulation of marijuana." Along with Trudeau's fight to legalize weed, his major priorities for the Canadian government also include "physician-assisted death [and] inquiries into murdered and missing indigenous women."
