When will recreational cannabis become legal in Canada?

The Canadian government predicts that recreational cannabis will hit shelves by the end of summer 2018. On June 7, 2018, the Senate will hold a third reading vote on the Cannabis Act, where the law will likely pass and receive Royal Assent. Then, the provinces and territories will take 8 to 12 weeks to ensure an orderly transition to the new legal framework.
