The federal government has confirmed that Canadians will not be able to legally buy recreational marijuana on Canada Day, or even in the month of July. Instead, you will have to wait until August or possibly even later. The senate has agreed to hold a final vote by June 7th on Bill C-45, which legalizes the recreational use of marijuana in Canada. Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor says provincial and territorial governments will need eight to twelve weeks following royal assent to prepare for retail sales so it could even be September before pot is officially legal in Canada.
