Canada’s new legal marijuana regime is expected to feature a mishmash of provincial rules and a heavily regulated production system that will initially favour existing producers of medical cannabis. Former Liberal cabinet minister Anne McLellan, who leads a task force outlining a framework for the system, gave her report to the government, offering recommendations on how marijuana should be legally produced and sold and how it could be consumed and by whom. The report still has to be translated into French before being made public in coming weeks. (See also: 8 burning questions about the coming federal pot report)
