Kenora MP Bob Nault says he's glad the day has finally come for the legalization of marijuana.
"It'll make a difference in young people's lives, and I think that's what's important about the change we've made. It's the reason we did make it," he said.
Nault says he's been hearing about the push for legalization since he got into politics about 30 years ago.
He adds the legalization of marijuana will help communities in a number of ways.
"That's the opportunity for us to make a difference and making sure the $6 billion a year as an industry doesn't go to the criminal element," the MP noted.
