Today is a day I never thought I would see. Marijuana is officially legal across the country. It was legal medicinally before, but now it is not only legal recreationally, but you can also grow up to 4 plants at your home! This is going to be amazing for our economy, and for the medical research industry who can finally start to do research into all the amazing things Cannabis has to offer.
Whether you are a user or not, approve of it or not, it will benefit many Canadians who don't have to turn to prescription meds, or have to hang out at a shady dealers place. There are countless more options, like edibles, salves, vapes, oils, etc.

Close to where I am, there is a Native Reservation where dispensaries have been open for a few years. The deal Canada made with Natives is complex, but they sort of live under their own rules. The police have not bothered with anything on the Rez. It has been really neat to see it grow from one shop to over 50 now. Drive throughs, cafes, warehouses, with all kinds of cannabis goodies. They also have music festivals and information events. It has been a fascinating change to the town to watch and partake in.
The rez even became famous after one of the shops had an attempted robbery and the store clerk fought the men off with a bong. I mean, this is pretty great.
