B.C. to Begin Public Consultation on Marijuana Legalization

Date:

Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth told municipal leaders across B.C. that the government is beginning an extensive public engagement on how legalized marijuana will be sold and regulated in the province.

He says when it comes to pot access the province it won’t be “one size fits all” and the aim won’t be a “cash grab.”

Farnworth said the public engagement process will focus on what the legal age for cannabis use will be, what legal possession limits will be, drug-impaired driving and issues around personal cultivation.
