CANADA – The Canadian Senate voted Tuesday evening to legalize marijuana across the entire country.

Though the Senate passed a bill legalizing cannabis, Canadian provinces and territories still needed eight to 12 weeks to prepare for retail sales.

Trudeau’s cabinet was set to decide an official legalization date in early or mid-September.
