When asked by a listener when marijuana will be legal and available to purchase in Canada, Trudeau said the priority is to protect underage Canadians from having such easy access as they do now.

‘We’re the number one country of 29 different developed countries in terms of access to underage minors to marijuana, so it needs to be harder for them to access.”

He also says it needs to be removed as a source of revenue for gun-runners, street gangs and organized crime.

“We’re looking at what is being done south of the border, and it’ll be coming, we’re working on right now. We have former police chief Bill Blair working on it attentively and when we have the right solution, we’ll put it forward.”
