Canada is getting ready to legalize recreational marijuana.
On October 17, it will be legal for adults in Canada to possess, buy, use and grow cannabis. But each province and territory is allowed to set its own rules around marijuana, so the minimum age to buy, the types of marijuana available and how much people are allowed to have will vary.
One concern with the new law is people driving while high.
The government official who’s overseeing legalization says the country’s police officers have been given the “training, tools and technology to actually detect and deter” impaired drivers.
