Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said he would work toward legalizing marijuana in the country during his campaign, possibly saw his popularity get higher Thursday when he introduced legislation legalizing the recreational use of cannabis in the country.
“We want to make it more difficult for kids to access marijuana. That is why we are going to legalize and control marijuana,” Trudeau said the day before his government introduced two bills on the issue, Canadian newspaper Toronto Star reported.
The country aims to regulate the growth, import, export and sale of marijuana to keep cannabis away from underage users. Trudeau appointed Bill Blair, a lawmaker and former police chief of Toronto, to work on the legislation. At a press conference Thursday, Blair explained why legalizing marijuana is the way forward.
