Unlike its southern neighbour, Canada legalized medical Cannabis nationwide back in 2001. That means that the industry has evolved a lot more and is not plagued with restraints across state borders, as is the case in the U.S, where there are 29 states (and Washington, D.C.), where Cannabis is allowed for medical use. Further, Canada introduced the Cannabis Act recently, and the bill to legalize recreational cannabis use is expected to pass by July of 2018. However, in America, the immediate future for legal cannabis was in question after Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed an Obama-era law that protected states willing to liberalize legal Cannabis laws.
