Recreational, or non-medical, cannabis is expected to be legal in Canada by July 2018. The federal government plans to pass legislation that sets a framework for legalizing recreational cannabis. Within this federal framework, provinces and territories must make their own rules and regulations for sale, possession and use.
Nova Scotia is working hard to get ready and to ensure provincial policies and laws strike a balance between making this product legal and protecting the health and safety of Nova Scotians, especially children and youth.
The Province of Nova Scotia has launched a public consultation so Nova Scotians can have their say. This is a significant change for Canadians – and for our province. As we develop rules and regulations for Nova Scotia, it is important we hear from everyone.
