In 2017, Canada will become the first G7 nation to fully legalize marijuana use. The stock prices of cannabis companies reveal investors are anticipating millions of users and a multi-billion market. In terms of how it’s regulated, will Canada get it right? Earlier this month, a federal task force made 80 recommendations to the government, among them, setting the age limit to 18. Bloomberg TV Canada’s Amanda Lang speaks to W.A. Bogart, professor of Law at the University of Windsor and author of “Off The Street: Legalizing Drugs,” and Bruce Linton, CEO of Canopy Growth, Canada’s first marijuana “unicorn” after reaching a billion-dollar valuation.

The Real Reason Ohio Didn’t Legalize Weed

Ohio voted against the legalization of marijuana, but not for the reason you might think. The law would have only allowed a handful of private investors to profit from the sale of cannabis. Activists believe that is the wrong approach and actually fought against the legalization. Ana Kasparian (The Point) and John Iadarola (Think Tank) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

“Ohio voters rejected a ballot proposal Tuesday that would have legalized both recreational and medical marijuana in a single stroke — a vote-getting strategy that was being watched as a potential test case for the nation.

Failure of the proposed state constitutional amendment followed an expensive campaign, a legal fight over its ballot wording, an investigation into petition signatures — and, predominantly, a counter campaign against a network of 10 exclusive growing sites it would have created. It was the only marijuana legalization question on the 2015 statewide ballots.

About 65 percent of voters opposed the measure, compared to 35 percent in favor.”
