Legal pot in Canada will soon be legal in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
The provincial governments announced Wednesday that they had reached an agreement on a pilot program to begin in 2020.
The agreement comes after months of intense debate in Alberta.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said the province would not enforce marijuana laws until the pilot program is up and running.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall said his province would only decriminalize marijuana if it is proven safe.
“We are in a position now to say that this is not going to happen, that it’s not going for the duration of the pilot,” Wall said.
“But if it’s proven safe, we will do it.”
The agreement is the latest in a series of legislative changes that have occurred in Alberta, and could be used to bring down criminal penalties for possession and use of marijuana.
The new rules will come into effect in 2019.
