A potential legal battle is brewing between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Senate over  Quebec and Manitoba’s cannabis proposed cannabis regulations. 

The battle has been brought about after Mr. Trudeau and his government rejected the Senate’s amendment to Bill C-45. The alteration would have given the province’s the option to remove the rights of Canadians to grow up to four cannabis plants at home. 

The Prime Minister and his government argue that home cultivation was a strong recommendation held by experts to keep out organized crime. As well they believe that cannabis should be held equivalent to alcohol and tobacco, both of which Canadian’s can produce at home. 

Meanwhile, Quebec and Manitoba have stated that home cultivation will be difficult to police, and so have both decided to prohibit it. 

The issue is now a near guarantee to end up in front of the courts as the government pushes to legalize recreational marijuana early next month.
