Canada is the second in the world to legalize marijuana. Interest of Americans to move has sharply grown

From Russia, too, you can move – though it’s harder.

On June 19, Canada became the second country in the world to completely legalize marijuana in the wake of Uruguay. The date of the law’s entry into force is still unknown, but the first legal parties will start selling until the end of 2018.

Canadians will be able to use marijuana not only for medical purposes, but also freely buy and sell to adults. In addition, they were allowed to grow marijuana at home, but for sale it will be necessary to obtain a license.

Americans, the nearest neighbors of Canadians, have been going to legalize marijuana for several years, but so far they have only achieved partial decriminalization for medical purposes. However, permission is not available in all states: for example, in Kansas, Texas and Idaho, marijuana is still banned .

Including because of this, the number of requests for Google on the topic of moving to Canada increased. The most popular of them is “How to become a citizen of Canada,” according to Google’s trends.
