Canada legalized marijuana for selected medicinal uses in 2001. The legislation sets the minimum age at 18, but allows each province to determine whether the age should be higher. Persons younger than 18 found with small amounts of marijuana would not face criminal charges, USA Today reported. However, those who sell it or give to youths could face up to 14 years in jail. “It’s too easy for our kids to get marijuana. We’re going to change that,” Trudeau said. In the United States, Marijuana Stocks seven states allow recreational use of marijuana. Voters in California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada voted last year to approve recreational use, joining Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington. Canadas proposed law allows four plants to be grown at home. “If your objective is to protect public health and safety and keep cannabis out of the hands of minors, and stop the flow of profits to organized crime, then the law as it stands today has been an abject failure,” Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said at a news conference.
