Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau says “next summer,” and not July 1, is the date cannabis will become legalized across the country.

Excerpts of an interview with Trudeau and Pierre Bruneau with the TVA network in Quebec were released yesterday, with the full interview to be shown tonight.

Trudeau shook his head when asked him why he was so obsessed with July 1 as the date for the cannabis legislation to become law.

The prime minister said it “would not be July 1,” but that it would be “for next summer.”

“The date will not be July 1, I can assure you of that,” Trudeau said. “I don’t know where that date came from.”

However, a statement issued by the Health Department last month said, “as previously indicated, the government of Canada intends to bring the proposed Cannabis Act into force no later than July 2018.”

Many provinces have been pushing the federal government to delay passing the legislation in order to give them more time to prepare.
