Cannabis Legalization: Have your say!

There’s still time to have your say on how B.C. should regulate the use of non-medical cannabis when the federal government makes it legal next July. Marijuana Legalization

B.C.’s goal is to build a provincial regulatory framework for non-medical cannabis that prioritizes the protection of young people, health and safety, locking criminals out of the industry, and keeping roads safe. All British Columbians have an opportunity to share their views, become a part of history, and help ensure the framework best represents their interests and priorities.

“The legalization of non-medical cannabis will be a significant change for Canadians – and for British Columbia," said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. "We want to hear from people throughout the province so that we can develop a regulatory framework that maximizes public health and safety and is built for British Columbians, by British Columbians."

To have your voice heard on issues such as minimum age, personal possession limits, consumption in public, drug-impaired driving, personal cultivation, distribution and retail models, visit the consultation website before 4 p.m. on Nov. 1, 2017, at: http://engage.gov.bc.ca/BCcannabisregulation/

Since the launch of the public engagement period on Sept. 25, 2017, more than 30,000 British Columbians from around the province have completed the survey and shared their feedback.
