The Canada Senate today passed the legal weed bill that will make cannabis recreationally available to all of Canada's provinces.
The new legislation will make Canada the first G7 country to allow the use of cannabis.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals had made legalizing recreational use of marijuana part of their successful 2015 election campaign, arguing the new law would keep pot out of the hands of underage users and reduce related crime.
Bill C-45 passed by a vote of 52 to 29, with two senators abstaining, and will now move to royal assent.
The Senate's amendment was meant to head off any legal challenges to the provinces' constitutional authority to prohibit home cultivation.

"That does not in any way suggest that it's now party time".
As for cannabis tax haul, Finance Minister Bill Morneau has estimated a total of $400 million (€260 million), although Ottawa has agreed to retain only 25 per cent of the total raised and put the rest into provincial government coffers. We'll see the end of criminalisation and we can start addressing Canada's $7 billion illegal market. The bill has been the subject of more than a year of fractious debate and games of legislative ping-pong between the Senate and lawmakers in Canada's lower house of Parliament.
Among the rejected amendments was one which would have authorized provinces to prohibit home cultivation of marijuana if they choose. In the neighboring US, nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana.
