    I see Canada’s senate has just passed recreational Cannabis law reform.. 64% voted in favour. It now just needs ‘Royal assent’. They legalised Med-use in 2001
    Canada is the second country that have legalised it at the national/federal level after Uruguay.

    ..BUT many other OECD countries (besides NZ) have also regulated or ‘decrim’ at the state/province level !
