Thursday marked the year anniversary of legal recreational marijuana sales in Canada.
Sen. Bernie Sanders took to his Twitter to congratulate the nation. He wrote, “Congratulations to our neighbors to the north on completing their first year of marijuana legalization!”
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate added, “Vermont shares a border with Canada, and as far as I can tell, the sky has not fallen and the cities have not plunged into anarchy on the other side.”
Legal recreational marijuana went into effect on October 17 last year.
Forms of recreational cannabis were limited to dry flower (or bud), tinctures and capsules but not for long.
Health Canada, the governing body overseeing and regulating cannabis sales, on Thursday started accepting applications from companies seeking to produce cannabis-derived goods such as edibles, beverages and vaping products.
