Cannabis Legalization and Regulation in Canada


As of October 17, 2018, Canada legalized cannabis. The Cannabis Act creates a strict legal framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale, and possession of cannabis in Canada. The Act has 3 goals, including keeping cannabis out of the hands of youth, keeping profits out of criminals’ pockets, and protecting public health and safety by allowing adults access to legal cannabis.

Premium cannabis, cannabis edible products, and cannabis concentrates are then made legal for sale. However, these are still regulated and subjected to provincial or territorial restrictions. Only adults who are 18 years of age and older are legally able to avail of cannabis at a specific maximum amount.

When it comes to possession limits, the Cannabis Act provides that an adult can only legally possess 150 grams of fresh cannabis. Because studies about this substance’s medical benefits have expanded, the government largely aims to allow people to access it if they have the authorization of their healthcare provider.

Of course, the youth should remain protected from this drug. The Act provides that no person can sell or provide cannabis to any person under the age of 18, and if anyone is caught doing so, he or she shall suffer imprisonment up to 14 years. Just like magic mushrooms in Vancouver, British Columbia, cannabis is also very popular among the youth, hence, the need to regulate it and protect minors.

Promotion and enticement of cannabis use through advertisements are also prohibited as these can easily lure young people. Strict requirements are also being implemented by the federal government for producers and providers who grow and manufacture cannabis.
