Marijuana legalization in Canada has come one step closer as of Wednesday, March 14th, 2018. Saskatchewan, the last province to release its pot policy, has issued the framework of the policy to the public.
Like the other prairie provinces of Alberta and Manitoba, Saskatchewan has set the legal age of possession at nineteen, one year higher than the federal minimum. It will, however, follow the federal standards on home production, and the proposed formula on taxes.
What does this mean for the cannabis lovers of Saskatchewan?You are allowed up to four plants per household, and 30 grams of cannabis per consumer. Following it’s current policies for alcohol, Saskatchewan will have strict prohibitions on possession for minors, driving under the influence, and being high at work.
