Trudeau's Cabinet is expected to decide a legalisation date in early or mid-September.

It also allows adults to sell cannabis as well as grow up to four plants in their home, making Canada the second country in the world after Uruguay to legalize recreational marijuana use, and the first G7 nation to do so.

Cannabis has been legal in a number of areas in Canada already, mostly for medicinal purposes, but this will grant full permission for the recreational use of the drug throughout the country.

Canada just legalized marijuana nationwide.

After that, he spent a year apiece with the Phoenix Suns, the Cleveland Cavaliers (alongside Lebron), and the Boston Celtics. Cleveland can offer him $205 million over five years, while other teams can offer him $152 million over four years.

Conservative senators also raised other concerns, such as slower U.S. border crossings, that kept the bill in the upper house for about seven months.

On Wednesday, he tweeted, "It's been too easy for our kids to get marijuana - and for criminals to reap the profits".

The Senate's approval in a vote in Ottawa clears the way for the final step - a ceremonial signing - to officially make the bill law.

Conservative senators remained staunchly opposed to legalization.

The government rejected 12 other amendments approved by the Senate, but senators felt most strongly about the home cultivation one. It was defeated by a vote on Tuesday evening. It sets out parameters around the production, possession, safety standards, distribution, and sale of marijuana. We'll see the end of criminalisation and we can start addressing Canada's $7 billion illegal market.

But Leonard Saunders, an American immigration lawyer in Washington state, testified before a Senate committee that Canadians could be denied entry to the United States even after cannabis is legalized because it is still considered illegal at the federal level in the United States.
