  • B.C.'s first legal cannabis store approved one day before legalization

NDP MP Murray Rankin tabled a private member's bill earlier this month that pushed for the expungement of records of anyone who carries a criminal record for past minor, non-violent pot possession convictions.

Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for almost 20 years.

A formal announcement was planned for later Wednesday.

A patchwork of regulations has spread in Canada as each province takes its own approach within the framework set out by the Federal Government.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford was quick to sound off Tuesday on the reliability of drug-impaired driving screens.

Nine U.S. states have legalized recreational use of pot, and more than 30 have approved medical marijuana.

The federal government approved the first oral fluid drug screening test, the Dräger DrugTest® 5000, in August allowing frontline police officers to detect the presence of THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in Cannabis. The goal is to better reflect society's changing opinion about marijuana and bring black market operators into a regulated system.

Buyers have to verify they are over the age of 19 three different times during the ordering process, but will not have to prove their age before completing a purchase, unlike other jurisdictions like Alberta.

The product would be returned to the branch if the person is underage, and a refund would be issued, the ministry says. Health Canada will develop regulations on edibles within a year, Blair said, adding he would caution consumers about their use in the meantime.
