Canadians looking forward to enjoying legal marijuana don't have to worry about a change in the government's timetable for legalization, despite calls by police and some provinces to postpone the roll out.

Trudeau -- speaking after a cabinet retreat in St. John's -- pointed out that the aim of legalization is to make it harder for kids to get access and to push organized crime out.
