    Task force recommends legalizing mail order, storefront pot sales for Canadians

    OTTAWA — Eighteen-year-olds should be allowed to buy recreational cannabis when the Liberal government launches a globe-leading social experiment in legalizing marijuana next year, a federally appointed task force said Tuesday.

    The age limit — and the hazy science of pot-impaired driving — were among the most contentious aspects during five months of hearings and research, task force vice-chair Dr. Mark Ware told a news conference in the parliamentary precinct.

    The framework report is recommending storefront and mail-order sales to people 18 and older, with personal growing limits of four plants per person and a 30-gram limit on personal possession.

    No other major western country — with the exception of Uruguay, population 3.5 million — has fully legalized and the world will be watching.

    The green light for teenagers helped boost stock prices for marijuana producers on the Toronto Stock Exchange and produced a sharp exchange in the House of Commons, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau defended his government’s policy direction without committing to following all the task force’s 80-plus recommendations when legislation is introduced next spring

    Can’t wait to see how the Liberals mangle this.

    1. They already sell it by mail order

    One of the local pot shops has a booming business, they even had a black Friday sale and more than doubled their regular orders.
