Ontario Marijuana Legalization Laws Update

Ontario is the first province to bring forth a plan for the upcoming legalization next year. There have been many mixed reviews so far, but at least we are making progress. So let’s review the highlights.

The proposed minimum age will be 19
The proposed possession limits are 30g for adults and 5 for youths
Basically, only allowed to consume in our own homes. Will not be allowed in public
It will be illegal to operate a dispensary
Planned 150 stores in Ontario.

As we continue to get closer to full legalization, I’m sure there are going to be many rule changes along the way. I hope we can find the right solutions for growers and consumers. It’s a medicine that many people can benefit from but we need the right system in place for all.
