What does "stigma" here mean?
"Stigma" can be understood as the "shame," "dishonor," or "infamy" surrounding something. For example, marijuana has been illegal in Canada (and most countries around the world) for many years, so there is stigma (negative views) surrounding its use. The speaker uses this expression to express that since marijuana has been legalized in Canada, the stigma surrounding it will end as well. Ex: In many countries, there is still stigma associated with being a single mother. Ex: Cannabis use has been stigmatized throughout history in Canada.
