Government of Canada:
On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act came into force.
It puts in place, in Canada, a new, strict framework for controlling cannabis sale, possession, production, and distribution. The purpose of the Act is to prevent youth from accessing cannabis and to displace the illegal cannabis market.
On October 17, 2019, the production and sale of edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals became legal in Canada under the Cannabis Act. The products are subject to strict regulations in order for the government to address the unique public health and safety risks.
