Hundreds of Canadians have taken to the streets to celebrate the legalization of recreational marijuana following a nearly century-long ban.
Canada officially became the first industrialized nation to legalize the drug following a two-year push by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s government, which hopes to bring dealers out of the black market and into a regulated system.
Cannabis connoisseurs appear to have embraced the new system as massive queues formed outside many of the 111 legal pot shops now open around the country.
For many young girls it represent the symbol of new pleasure.
