On April 13, 2017, the Government of Canada released Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act, which, as discussed in a prior blog post, deferred significant discretion to the provinces with respect to the distribution, sale and retailing of cannabis.
The Ontario provincial government has released a consultation paper on Cannabis legalization in Ontario and the Ministry of the Attorney General is conducting a public consultation with respect to:
a) the minimum age for the use, possession and purchase of cannabis;
b) locations where cannabis use is permitted;
c) impaired driving regulations;
d) the sale and distribution of cannabis; and
e) public education.
You can provide your feedback on the consultation paper by July 31st by completing the online survey, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to:Ontario Legalization of Cannabis Secretariat Ministry of the Attorney General 720 Bay Street, 11th Floor Toronto, ON M7A 2S9
