Canadian Prime Minister Recommends Minimum Age of 18 to Buy Legal Pot
Now that Canada has gotten the green light to sell recreational weed in a range of retail outlets, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has recommended that the minimum age to partake should be set at 18 or 19.
“I think the proposal for the age of 18, or 19 in some provinces, to align with the [legal drinking age] across the country, is a reasonable compromise,” Trudeau said at a news conference on Thursday. “We know the largest misdeeds of marijuana use happens at a lower age than 18, 19 years of age, and I think this is a responsible approach that we have found in terms of balance that is both practical and useful.”
In most of Canada’s 10 provinces, the legal drinking age is 19; in Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta, the age limit is 18.

Recreational Pot Delivery Is Coming to Portland
Considering that medical marijuana patients in Portland can have pot delivered to their doors, shouldn’t recreational users be given the same privilege?
Portland’s City Council thinks that sounds fine. It recently added a license for delivery-only cannabis businesses to a marijuana regulation plan to come up for a vote next week.
The so-called “marijuana retail couriers” would not be allowed to sell from storefronts. Already existing weed shops will also be able to deliver recreational pot under rules detailed by the state.
Adrian Wayman, co-founder of Green Box, a start-up online weed delivery service, told HIGH TIMES that there’s definitely a market for delivery of recreational pot products. He thinks the “chances are good that the City Council will approve it.”
