Recreational legalization may mark the beginning of the end of Canada's pot prominence.

Its deliberate approach, which took more than two years of planning, allows provinces to shape their own laws within a federal framework, including setting the minimum age and deciding whether to distribute through state-run or private retail outlets.

Canada on Wednesday became the world's first major economy to fully legalise cannabis, sparking celebrations as the nation embarked on the controversial experiment in drug policy.

"The last time Canada was this far ahead in anything, Alexander Graham Bell made a phone call", said Mr Linton, whose company recently received an investment of $4 billion from Constellation Brands, whose holdings include Corona beer and Robert Mondavi wines.

British Columbia clocking more than 5,000 online cannabis sales by 2 p.m. was more important news to licensed cannabis producers than a sell off of stock that drove down shares in publicly traded companies.

.

Newfoundland and Labrador were the first to sell cannabis.

Another is at the US-Canadian border. While recreational weed is legal in eight states, including Washington and ME, which border Canada, people can not travel to and from such states with marijuana because customs and immigration are under federal jurisdiction.

Reform advocates have been promoting marijuana legalization in Italy for years, without success. He has voiced concern over the lack of concrete decisions made between the Canadian and American governments on the issue of marijuana legalization.

Therefore, there are no actual guiding numbers regarding how much cannabis can be consumed before it is unsafe to drive. For example, although people are permitted to carry a small amount of marijuana at the Los Angeles International Airport, it is still illegal for someone flying from Canada to transport marijuana there.

From an educational standpoint, advocate Jo Vos, managing director of the information portal Leafly Canada, said B.C.'s liquor distribution branch had done a good job of hiring knowledgeable staff from the existing industry.

Pot smoker Ian Power said: "I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall".

Power also told The Canadian Press he was not actually going to smoke the first bud he bought, and would keep it as a memento "forever".

The stores have a sterile look, like a modern clinic, with a security desk to check identification.

Meanwhile, industry players and watchers have said to expect product shortages at the outset.

"It's a product like many that are used today for intimate areas of the body, but it should be labelled as such ... obviously there's a mistake there that needs to be corrected, so we certainly will be following up with them to ensure that the right information is being given to consumers".
