The Canadian Senate on Tuesday passed a measure to legalize and regulate marijuana, joining Uruguay as the only countries in the world to create a nationwide market for pot. Canadians as young as age 18 can begin legally purchasing the drug in early to mid-September. The Canadian government had hoped for a July 1 start date, but provincial and territorial governments said they need eight to 12 weeks to prepare for legal retail sales.
