On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act came into force, setting rules for adults to access quality-controlled cannabis while creating a new, tightly regulated supply chain of cannabis distribution.

The Cannabis Act creates a strict legal framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada. The Act aims to accomplish 3 goals:

• Keep cannabis out of the hands of youth
• Keep profits out of the pockets of criminals
• Protect public health and safety by allowing adults access to legal cannabis
