OPP say the Cannabis Act of June 2018 was the introduction to the legalization of cannabis in Ontario, but similar to liquor, there are still laws surrounding the use of marijuana.

Cannabis users must be 19 years or older to buy, use, possess and grow recreational cannabis. This is the same age for tobacco products and alcohol.  

Police remind you that cannabis cannot be smoked or vaped:  

  • Indoor common areas in condos, apartment buildings and university/college residences
  • Enclosed public places and enclosed work places
  • Non-designated guest rooms in hotels, motels and inns.
  • Schools and places where children gather
  • Hospitals, hospices, care homes and other facilities
  • Publicly owned places
  • Vehicles and boats

Police remind you that  you are allowed to have a maximum of 30 grams of dried cannabis in public at any time or equivalent to five grams fresh cannabis, 15 grams of edible product, 70 grams of liquid product, one cannabis plant seed or a quarter of a gram of concentrates.
