  • Canada's legislature just voted to legalize recreational marijuana.

  • The House of Commons voted 52-29 for the Cannabis Act on Tuesday.

  • That's after it rejected 13 different amendments to the bill.

  • This most likely means people in Canada will be able to purchase marijuana and cannabis oil from retail stores and on online by mid-September.

  • Adults will also be allowed to possess 1 ounce of dried marijuana in public.

  • Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will decide exactly when the law will go into effect, but it'll take Canada up to 12 weeks to prepare.

  • He said on Twitter Tuesday: "It's been too easy for our kids to get marijuana and for criminals to reap the profits. Today, we change that."
