Saskatchewan Laws Regarding Marijuana Legalization
The date of recreational marijuana legalization is bearing down on Saskatchewan very soon. As of October 17, 2018, you will be able to enjoy recreational marijuana at will. However, that does not mean there are not any rules in place. In fact, there are a lot of rules that you need to be aware of before the date passes, so come check them out.
What Is The Legal Status Of Marijuana In Saskatchewan?
Like most places, you can only use marijuana in this province for medical reasons at the present time, strictly speaking. However, in the near future this will change and recreational marijuana, including oils, will be legal for consumption throughout the province. There will be limitations in place, though.
Where Can I Buy Marijuana?
You are going to be able to buy marijuana on the internet as well as in privately owned stores. For private stores, they have to have a brick and mortar shop if they plan on selling their wares online. Additionally, there will be a restriction on the number of licenses that are available for marijuana stores in the province for the first three years of legalization.
How Old Will I Have To Be To Buy Marijuana?
You will have to be 19 years of age to purchase marijuana in Saskatchewan. Anyone under this age will face penalties, and parents can be heavily fined for youth usage and exposure to marijuana.
Am I Allowed To Grow My Own Supply Of Marijuana?
Much like many of the other provinces, you can have up to four plants on your private property at any time as long as they are properly concealed. They have to be out of the view of minors, so the assumption is that they must be grown behind a fence or indoors and in a separate room.
How Much Marijuana Can A Person Buy From A Store At A Time?
You will be allowed to buy as much as 30 grams from a store per transaction. In this case, the amount you are allowed to buy mirrors the total amount that a person is allowed to carry on them legally at any given time.
What Is The Legal Limit On Marijuana Possession For A Single Person?
The legal limit on marijuana possession is 30 grams when you are in a public place. There is presently no strict limit on the amount of marijuana that you can have in your home.
Where Can I Use Marijuana Legally In Saskatchewan?
You are legally allowed to use marijuana on private property and in private residences for the time being. Moreover, you are not allowed to use it in public places and it is restricted to use it around minors. That last part is very difficult to enforce in private homes, but still something you should be aware of to say the least.
Overall, Saskatchewan has lenient and fair marijuana laws that will be in place rather soon. Keep an eye out for any changes that occur along the way and enjoy!
