Earlier this month Canada put forth a proposal to legalize, tax, and regulate cannabis on a nationwide scale. The two legalization bills have been widely heralded and, if passed, would make Canada the world’s leader in cannabis legislation.
Part of that cutting edge, according to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, will be an online marketplace where Canadians will be able to buy their weed without even ever have to physically step foot in a dispensary should they choose to.
The Internet revelation came during a live conversation about Canadian legalization hosted by Vice Canada. Trudeau said that the online system would be part of an effort to assure Canadians “in every corner of this country” will be able to access the newly legal reefer.
Under the current legalization plan, prohibition would end nationwide, but it would be up to local provinces to decide how to distribute and sell the sticky-icky. If your local municipality doesn’t want to set up pot shops, though, Trudeau’s e-dispensary would make sure you are still able to enjoy all the benefits of legal weed.
At this point, it’s looking like the proposed online cannabis marketplace will be necessary, too….
