House of Commons Passes Marijuana Bill in Canada
Author: Jon Hiltz 28/11/2017 - 19:00:00

In a historic vote Monday evening, Canada’s House of Commons approved Bill C-45, the legislation which will eventually legalize marijuana in the Great White North. 

The final vote was 200 in favor and 82 against with bipartisan support from Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, Conservative MP Scott Reid, and votes from the New Democrats (NDP) as well. 

In a last minute Hail Mary effort to delay the bill, the Conservative Party held a vote to send the legislation back to the Health Committee for further scrutiny. The attempt to stonewall failed with 83 in favor of the postponement and 199 against. 

The bill now heads to the Senate where some senators have indicated a significant inspection of the legislation.
