The Canadian government introduced legislation on Thursday that put the country on track to make recreational marijuana use legal by July 2018, with plans to regulate production but leave the oversight of retail sales up to the provinces.

The legislation put forward by the ruling Liberal party, which made legalizing recreational marijuana part of its successful 2015 election campaign, would set the minimum legal age for use and purchase at 18, though provinces would be able to raise it.
