The date to legalize marijuana has been changed.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the July 1st legalization date has been scratched and legalization will happen sometime in the summer.

Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus says he doesn’t know if he should be really surprised by this news or not surprised at all.

He says this is not something that can just be rolled out.

Angus says the Prime Minister and the government need a formal plan in place that includes input from all the provinces and communities for this to move forward.
