As of midnight, cannabis prohibition ended in Canada
Canada may have population growth!!
Marijuana in now legal in Canada. Our neighbor to the north became the first G-7 nation to legalize recreational marijuana. The law went into effect at midnight in each of Canada's time zones.
People lined up in Newfoundland to be the first to legally purchase marijuana. The country's leaders are also expected to announce this morning that they’ll begin giving pardons to anyone who was arrested for possession of small amounts of marijuana in the past.
What does the end of prohibition mean? The new law allows adults ages 18 and older to possess up to 30-grams (that’s just over an ounce) of legal cannabis. But it’s not a total free-for-all. Giving cannabis to youth is still considered a serious crime with penalties up to 14 years in jail.

New York City hit a new crime-free milestone.
The Full Story:
There were no shootings in New York City on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, which makes this the first weekend in decades without reported shootings, officials said Monday.
Mayor Bill de Blasio attributed it to the NYPD’s strategy, training and continual push to get better. Shooting incidents citywide have dropped this year as compared to last year.
“Isn’t that amazing? You know, when you think about the history we came from and the challenges that had to be overcome by this NYPD, it’s absolutely extraordinary,” de Blasio said at an NYPD graduation ceremony. “But I want to emphasize, a city of 8.6 million people – not a single shooting for three days.”
This weekend’s streak started after a Thursday morning shooting in Brooklyn and ended Monday afternoon following a shooting in the Bronx.
There were 600 shootings across all five boroughs so far this year as of Oct. 7. It’s a 2 percent drop compared to the same time period in 2017.
NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill called the shooting free weekend “something all New Yorkers can be proud of.”
