OTTAWA -- The federal government's plan to legalize marijuana by next summer is a step closer.
Bill C-45 received final approval Monday in the House of Commons, passing by a vote of 200-82.
It now moves to the Senate, where Conservative senators are threatening to hold up passage of the bill.
That could yet derail the government's plan to have a legalized pot regime up and running by July.
Some provinces have complained they can't be ready to implement and enforce the legislation so quickly.
