Bill C-45 goes into effect on Wednesday, October 17th which makes marijuana legal in Canada,
The new national law allows anyone over the age of 18 to possess up to 30 grams of marijuana and grow as many as four plants of any size per household. The range in regulations however varies from place to place. For instance, British Columbia has increased the age to 19. Quebec has indicated they plan to raise the minimum age to 21 and has already banned home-growing, like in Manitoba. Consumption in public spaces where tobacco smoking is allowed will be technically legal in Quebec. Some cities with the exemption of Montreal have chosen to ban public consumption entirely.
Online sales and delivery through the government-run Société Québécoise du Cannabis (SQDC) website are permitted in both B.C. and Quebec for Canadian addresses, with the purchaser able to show ID proving their legal age. The sale and distribution of marijuana edibles is not yet legal, with only dried cannabis and cannabis oil to be sold from licensed stores.
