Sergeant Bob’s Safety Tip of the MonthVisit the Senior Safety Tips website
RECREATIONAL CANNABIS - A Brief Summary for Canadian Seniors
In October 2018, Federal and Provincial statutes were changed to allow for the legal possession / use of cannabis inside Canada, but...
- Research both Federal and Provincial laws. While possession up to 30 grams is limited to age 18 years or older by federal statute, it’s 19 years or older in Ontario. Municipal laws may regulate sales at a local level.
- Impairment by cannabis is just as dangerous as impairment by alcohol, and carries the same penalties. NEVER use cannabis and drive.
- TRAVELLER / SNOWBIRD ALERT: It is illegal to travel out of, or into Canada with cannabis regardless of the laws at your destination.
