This is never actually going to be smoked. I’m going to keep it forever,” said Ian Power, who was among the first to buy marijuana in St. John’s, a city in the country’s easternmost province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Like Power, hundreds are now legally buying recreational marijuana all over Canada, but not without adjusting to a few rules. As marijuana enthusiasts continue celebrating this historic day for Canada, here’s a quick primer to get you up to speed. Who can buy marijuana in Canada?

The measure legalizing the recreational use of the drug passed the Senate in June.
