Safe disposal of cannabis
When you are travelling within Canada, you may possess up to 30 grams of dried cannabis or its equivalent, if you meet the minimum age requirement of the province or territory you are in.
Legal cannabis products are only sold through retailers authorized by your provincial or territorial government.
These products are subject to strict regulations that address their unique public health and safety risks.
If you have any health issues, or have questions about the effects of cannabis on your health, you should speak to your health care provider.
On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act came into force.
It became lawful on October 17, 2019 for legal forms of edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals to be produced and sold. It will take time before new products become available. You should only expect a limited selection of new products to appear gradually, in physical or online stores, beginning no earlier than mid-December 2019.
