Canada

As it stands, Cannabis is a controlled substance across Canada. Under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, distribution and production licenses are issued by Health Canada.

Looking into 2017, the Canadian government continues to discuss an age restriction when it comes to the sale of marijuana in Canada. The Canadian Medical Association recommends it to be 21 years or older, while a task force appointed by the Canadian Government think it should be 18 years and older with 30 grams as personal possession limit.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he will be introducing new laws in the Spring of 2017, a long-awaited report around the topic was released in December of 2016. We’ll see what happens but Primo is hoping that our products be available to anyone who needs them.

The future of cannabis in Canada looks very bright. The federal government is actively pursuing complete legalization and decriminalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes, and publicly traded marijuana corporates are flying high.

Will Canadian provinces be allowed to have different cannabis regulations, similar to alcohol sale and consumption? We will update you on our homepage and newsletter as new laws are passed.
