One of the lucky Canadians who managed to buy marijuana on the first day of legalisation at a cannabis store in Quebec City, Quebec.

The statement added that short-term supply shortages are expected due to "the craze surrounding legalization of cannabis and the scarcity of product across Canada".

On Wednesday, Canada became the world's first major economy - and only the second country in the world, after Uruguay - to legalize the recreational use of cannabis.

For example, if someone purchases pot from an unlicensed seller, they would be in possession of illegal cannabis.

"Consequently, crossing the border or arriving at a US port of entry in violation of this law may result in denied admission, seizure, fines, and apprehension", said Customs.

The sheriff's office said it had identified the woman who left the child but that it had not spoken to her yet. The boy is in the custody of Child Protective Services until authorities can release him to a family member.

The proposal is subject to approval by Parliament. Anyone found selling Marijuana to minor shall be imprisoned up to 14 years.

And there have been conflicting viewpoints on marijuana legalization within the Trump administration, making marijuana stocks look like risky investments. In Quebec, the legal purchasing age will be 18, and while citizens will also be permitted to carry up to 30 grams of the drug in public, the legal limit for possession on private property will be 150 grams.

Shoppers will have the ability to choose from various strains and have their order filled out by a store clerk, being able to choose between dried buds, ground cannabis, pre-rolled joints, cannabis oil, pills, or oral spray.

Like Power, hundreds are now legally buying recreational marijuana all over Canada but not without adjusting to a few rules.

Steven Hoffman, the chairman of the state's Cannabis Control Commission said yesterday that he was aware of the deals but he noted, "If somebody has a change of ownership, they have to notify us and we have to approve that change or they can lose their license".

"It's a candy store, I like the experience", said Vincent Desjardins, a 20-year-old-student who plans to apply for a job at the Montreal shop. Canada's Public Safety Minister said the government will consider a proposal to pardon those jailed for possessing a small amount of marijuana - as long as they have finished their sentence.

In the most populous provinces, a gram of pot was priced around the $7 to $13 range.

Cam Battley, chief corporate officer of Aurora Cannabis, also one of Canada's largest cannabis companies, said it's not every day you get to be involved in the start of a new industry.
