In April 2017, the federal government introduced Bill C-45 (Cannabis Act) to legalize recreational cannabis. While the legalization of cannabis is a federal decision, provinces and municipalities each have their own areas of responsibility to set clear processes for cannabis production, sale and consumption.
The federal legalization of cannabis will occur on October 17, 2018.
