The cookie making industry of Canada are rubbing their hands with glee!
The Canadian health minister just announced they will put legislation through to legalize marijuana throughout the country in 2017.
This is being pushed massively by Canada's new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Trudeau's party holds a majority in the House of Commons, so the legislation will probably pass if given the Prime Minister's full support.
A recent poll found that 65 percent of Canadians support decriminalization of marijuana, a number that has grown significantly in recent years.
Canada is already awesome but this just makes them even cooler!
