Last week, Canada finally released its much-anticipated marijuana legislation, making it the second country in the world after Uruguay to legalize marijuana for recreational usage. This is an important moment in the development of cannabis as a global industry and we are all watching Canada take on this new challenge. At Surna, we like to stay up to date on everything cannabis-related and have been watching these developments carefully. Now that legislation has been presented, we’ve put together 5 things you should know about how Canada got here and what recreational marijuana will look like for the nation.
Tuesday marked an incredible moment in history. This election will be remembered as one of the most shocking of all time. Donald Trump is now president elect of the United States of America. But before you start packing your bags and looking around for your passport, remember that now 1 in 5 Americans have access to marijuana. Yes folks, cannabis was the big winner this year with four states (Massachusetts, California, Nevada and Maine) voting to legalize recreational use for adults 21 and older and another four (Florida, North Dakota, Montana and Florida) voting to add or expand medical use. These states together represent about 75 million Americans who now have some type of access to cannabis. With so much uncertainty about what happens now, we can take comfort in one guarantee-- cannabis is not going anywhere anytime soon.

As part of an evolving industry, it is important to take time to thank those who tirelessly lobby and work to change the laws and create the legislation that allows this industry to exist in a legal manner.
