Newfoundland and Labrador
Legal age to buy cannabis: 19
Estimated Price: Unknown
Public Smoking: Illegal
Mirroring other marijuana laws in Canada, Newfoundland will have private retail locations selling cannabis. The Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation will issue licenses and will maintain an online store. In locations too remote for private retail, the government will be responsible for giving people access to marijuana. Stores can sell alcohol or cannabis, not both.
You can only get high in private, though. New legislation strictly prohibits smoking off private property.
Last fall, Newfoundland and Labrador government officials unveiled these plants to privatize cannabis sales and limit consumption. The eastern province is still working on pricing, an education campaign and the specificities of driving laws.
Overall, Newfoundland and Labrador are crafting legislation that treats marijuana much like alcohol. According to Justice Minister Andrew Parsons, “As cannabis is an intoxicating substance its consumption should be regulated, as we already do with alcohol.”
Final Hit: Marijuana Laws in Canada: Province by Province
Though marijuana will be legal on the federal level, there are some serious restrictions on consumption. You can’t toke up publicly in many provinces, or even in private apartments in some places. Some provinces let you grow your own weed; others don’t. Some provincial governments sell all cannabis products, others sell some and the rest leave it to the private sector.
And some marijuana laws in Canada aren’t fully flushed out, specifically in the less populated parts of the country.
All in all, Canadians will have a lot to celebrate with legalization. But it seems likely that, with these strict restrictions, a lot of people will be breaking marijuana laws in Canada.
