The Province of BC is seeking input on cannabis regulation
In April 2017, the Government of Canada introduced the Cannabis Act and amendments to the Criminal Code to address cannabis impaired driving, with plans to make non-medical cannabis legal in Canada by July 2018.
In addition, the federal government plans to move as quickly as possible to bring into force the amendments related to drug-impaired driving.
While the proposed Cannabis Act provides for the federal government to regulate commercial production, the Province of BC will have authority to regulate certain aspects, such as distribution, retail, and a range of other matters – as they do for tobacco and liquor. For example, BC will determine how and where cannabis can be sold and where it can be consumed in our province.
To be ready in time for July 2018, they want to hear from you about how they can implement this is in a responsible way.
