Legal Regulation of Marijuana in Canada and Selected Other Countries

The Library of Parliament has just published a background paper on The Legal Regulation of Marijuana in Canada and Selected Other Countries:
"This document discusses the legal regulation of marijuana in Canada and in a number of other jurisdictions. After some material on marijuana itself, it provides an overview of the international drug control regime, including current debates surrounding the possible reform of this regime and the outcomes of the 2016 United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem, which took place in April 2016. The document then turns to the legal treatment of marijuana in Canada, including the prevalence of use of marijuana in this country. It then examines different regulation approaches - including legalization and decriminalization - in a number of jurisdictions."
Those jurisdictions include Uruguay, the United States, Portugal, Spain, and the Netherlands.
