I’m going to assume that you work with your colleagues and processes established by law and Cabinet in order to deliver on your top priorities [including] a federal-territorial process that will lead to the legalization and regulation of marijuana, Prime Minister Trudeau wrote Jody Wilson-Justin Raybould, new Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the country.

The move is in line with a campaign pledge to formulate a plan to end the ban to start “immediately.” Support for legalization was swept included in the official platform of the Trudeau Liberal Party October 19th federal election in the country with a strong majority.

It is unclear how long it will take for the new government to formulate and implement, taxing a system and regulate marijuana, or what their special features are, but the early movement by Trudeau is an indication he intends to carry on follow what he. during the campaign promised The Parliament is expected to resume on December 3.

Trudeau also directed the health and public safety and emergency preparedness minister Wilson-Raybould to assist in formulating the plan for the law marijuana in individual letters released on Friday.

While the decision refers only to the four plaintiffs who brought the case, it caused shock waves around the world and ultimately lead to a statewide legalization if the court takes further cases and rules in a similar way. Separately, in the past week, a senator from the country ruling party introduced a bill to legalize the importation of medical marijuana.

And the US is pretty good with this move, according to a Foreign Ministry. “It is up to the people of every nation, the policy decision,” said John Kirby, a spokesman for the US State Department, told a press conference in response to questions about the growing of marijuana reform momentum in Canada and Mexico.

Within the limits of the United States marijuana is currently legal in four states and the District of Columbia. It is expected that at least five other states voting on ballot measures to marijuana prohibition in next November to end, and advocates believe that a handful of state legislators could adopt the legalization even faster.
