Canada’s proposed Cannabis Act would create a strict legal framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada. Updated and published earlier this year, the Act seeks to restrict youth access to cannabis, deter and reduce criminal activity by imposing serious criminal penalties for those breaking the law, especially those who import, export or provide cannabis to youth. It also aims to protect public health through safety and quality requirements, aiming to reduce the burden on the criminal justice system. “(We want to) allow adults to possess and access regulated, quality controlled legal cannabis,” says a Federal government spokesperson. “The current program for accessing cannabis for medical purposes would continue under the new Act.” Cannabis remains illegal until the proposed Cannabis Act is brought into force.
