Is it legal to grow weed in canada

“I can’t speak for all producers, but we’re going to launch ours closer to the time in the year when people plant seeds,” Canopy Growth’s Jordan Sinclair wrote in an email. “Late winter we’ll launch to the market so people can have them to plant in the spring.”

Should there be a one-metre height limit on plants? That was rejected as impractical. Should provinces be allowed to ban home grows? (Ottawa said no; Manitoba and Quebec disagree; a judge will probably have to settle the issue sooner or later.)

“We probably have hundreds of clients that are very interested in the nursery licences, specifically,” Anand says.

Marijuana retailers, mostly governments so far, would have to buy them from licenced producers, and they haven’t made any available.

The federal government is issuing “nursery licences” to small-scale producers who want to sell seeds or live plants. They can source their seeds from the bigger licenced producers or from abroad from countries like Jamaica or Uruguay (which Anand calls “not a terribly complex process”). They’re also allowed to buy seeds from grey-market producers, on a one-off basis — they have to declare them once when the licence is applied for, and not ever buy any more after that.

As for when that might happen, “We have no idea – not a clue. We’re just trying to deal with the shortage issue at the moment.”

The Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation is the only authorized retailer of recreational cannabis in Nova Scotia. Cannabis can be purchased by adults 19 or over at designated NSLC stores or online. For more information, visit the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation.

19 is the legal age to use, buy, grow or possess cannabis in Nova Scotia. If you’re under 19, you can be fined or face criminal charges.

Municipalities may pass additional bylaws that further restrict cultivation. Some have, so be aware of local bylaws.

There’s a limit to how much you can possess

Legal age adults can grow up to four cannabis plants per household. Each apartment in a house or building is considered a separate household. Take extra care to grow safely if you have children or pets at home.

Federal regulations for the legal sale and production of edible cannabis, extracts and topicals came into effect on October 17, 2019. Consumers should expect to see products on NSLC shelves beginning no earlier than mid-December 2019 due to Health Canada’s review process.

You must be 19

While edibles can be produced at home for personal use, it remains illegal under federal law to sell edibles, including at restaurants and markets.

The legalization of recreational cannabis has not changed the way medical patients access cannabis.
