Canada Legalized Cannabis: What’s Legal Now
Congratulations, Canada! Today proud adult Canadians get to explore the best of weed industry legally. Here’s a quick guide on what is legal now.
Possession for private needs is legal. However, different provinces have their own limits. Make sure you check rules for a place where you live. It’s also smart to check what kind of consumption is allowed by law so that you don’t get unpleasantly surprised. If you already know all these things — celebrate!
2. Bongs, pipes, and other paraphernalia
The sale and possession of cannabis accessories are now legal as well. However, some local restrictions still apply, so make sure that you understand the rules. Otherwise, get a beautiful pipe and light it up!
3. Growing weed and giving as it a present
Canadians can grow their own weed and give it away for free (to adults). However, but some provinces won’t allow it. The rule of a thumb is four plants per household. Growers can distribute up to 30 grams of cannabis — but only as a gift.
4. Weed weddings
Some states will allow people to have weed-themed weddings where it will be legal to offer cannabis-infused products along with cannabis parting gifts. As long as it’s less than 30 grams, you’re good. However, distributing cannabis at a third-party venue may be difficult — the law here depends on local legislation. So, before throwing a weed wedding, consult a lawyer or officials.
5. Extraction of cannabis for personal purpose
As long as the process doesn’t include organic solvents, you’re good to go. To make it happen Canadians can use non-organic solvents and solvent-free extraction devices, at least, these are not explicitly prohibited by law. As long as you use your rosin press for personal purpose, extraction is entirely legal.
This day has finally come, and Canada became the first G8 country with fully legal cannabis. It’s a hallmark of advocacy and common sense, and undoubtedly one of the biggest political wins of this century. Make sure you’re following your local laws and once again — congratulations, Canada!
