If you somehow have not heard the news by now last night the Canadian Senate voted to approve the marijuana bill legalizing cannabis across the country.

The bill has been in the works for a long time and now only needs the governor general to sign it to officially make it law.

As expected Canadians and people who heard the news have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on it and most of them seem pretty happy with it.

On a positive world note, congrats to Canada for legalizing marijuana! This is a step in the right direction and hopefully others continue to follow suit!

Some people though are not pleased. 

Typical liberal’s selling us a bill of goods.

There is not doubt, that it will be just as easy for kids to get their hands on their parents cannabis, as it is for them currently, to get their hands on their parents prescription medicines! #LiberalHipocrisy #LiberalLogic

No it’s still the same. It will still be easy for kids to get and criminals will still reap the profits. Only the names will change but the government is now the new criminals!

At least one person sees the legalization as a great business opportunity.

I just read Canada legalized Marijuana. This is probably the ideal time to pick up some @TimHortons stock!

Clearly, some people outside of Canada had no idea that it wasn't already legal here though.

Marijuana wasn’t legal in Canada before the vote that just happened? Am I the only one that is most surprised by this?

Americans are pretty jealous about it all though.

While the US is arguing over border control, Canada just finalized the vote on the legalization of marijuana.
Canada > US
