Canada

In 2001 Canada was the first country in the world to legalize medical cannabis for terminally ill patients. The government that came to power in November 2015 prioritizes the liberal approach toward drugs and it has introduced a comprehensive realization – a set of rules establishing a legal framework for the legal distribution of cannabis at designated shops provided with a state-issued license. Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau keeps saying that cannabis will be legalized in near future, and that it will be limited and regulated in order to protect the youth. At the moment, however, cannabis is still illegal. Even though the actual possession and use of small amounts is usually punished by fine and warning.
