Top 5 Countries For Weed

1. Canada – In Canada, people who are 18 years old or above are legally allowed to possess up to 30 grams of marijuana in its dried or non-dried form in public. They are also allowed to grow up to four marijuana plants at home from legal seedlings. However, you can only buy cannabis from provincially-licensed retailers and federally-licensed producers.

2. Jamaica – This super-chill country that introduced us to reggae music, decriminalized weed in 2015. The use of marijuana for medical and religious purposes is allowed. Also, if you happen to be a Rastafarian, you can use unlimited quantities of cannabis with no repercussions, whatsoever.

3. Ecuador – While, you might end up in jail for illegally cultivating and selling marijuana here, you are allowed to posses up to 10 grams for personal use.

4. Uruguay – This was one of the first countries in the world to legalize the use of cannabis for recreational purposes, in 2013. In fact, here pharmacies are the only place in the country where people can buy recreational marijuana. All buyers have to do is, register with a regulator.

5. The Netherlands – For decades, smoking weed has been legal in coffee shops in this country, though you aren’t allowed to grow it for personal use. It is a criminal offense to possess, produce or deal in drugs. Although, use of drugs by persons aged 18 years or older is not a criminal offense. So, just stick to the coffee shops.

Aston Villa 1 Arsenal 0

Dean Smith says his Aston Villa players “like to make history” after they completed a first top-flight double over Arsenal for 28 years. Goalkeeper Mat Ryan conceded 74 seconds into his debut for the Gunners as Villa followed up a 3-0 win at Emirates Stadium in November with a narrow victory at Villa Park. Former Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez started the move which led to Bertrand Traore pouncing on a mistake by Cedric Soares before Ollie Watkins scored with a shot that deflected off Rob Holding.

Boyhood Gunners fan Ryan, signed on loan from Brighton in January and starting in place of suspended first-choice keeper Bernd Leno, produced a fine save to deny Traore a goal on his return to the Villa side. Martinez frustrated his former club further when the Argentine produced an excellent save to keep out Granit Xhaka’s free-kick. Villa move up to eighth in the Premier League while Arsenal’s second successive defeat leaves them 10th. This was Villa’s sixth game in 18 days but there was little sign of fatigue as they worked hard to return to winning ways after being picked off by West Ham on Wednesday. John McGinn and Jack Grealish were both denied by Ryan while Watkins forced the new Arsenal keeper into two further saves.

Burkina Faso forward Traore brought fresh energy after being a substitute on Wednesday, while Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings helped limit Arsenal to three attempts on target. During a sustained period of Arsenal pressure, Mings did well to block Emile Smith Rowe’s goal-bound attempt and Matty Cash got in the way of Bukayo Saka’s shot. Aubameyang came on for the final 30 minutes at Villa Park but, despite a spell of sustained pressure towards the end, Mikel Arteta’s side failed to score for the third time in five games. After scoring against Wolves on Tuesday, Nicolas Pepe wasted two good chances while Martinez saved well from Hector Bellerin. Substitute Martin Odegaard blazed a late chance over the bar. The Gunners, who had two players sent off at Wolves in the previous game, were unhappy when Konsa’s first-half foul on Saka did not result in a red card.
