Cannabis regulation in Canada’s 10 provinces: Here’s what you need to know

When Canada’s plans to legalize recreational marijuana sprung into existence, people did not take it seriously, as many citizens thought it was a political scheme to convince voters. It was not until Wednesday, October 17, 2018, that many were convinced as Canada became the second country globally to accept the use of said plant.

As stores make their way, those interested need to bear many things in mind. For instance, what might the cost of purchasing marijuana be from province to province? Other factors worth mentioning here include supply and demand, age requirements, amount allowed in one’s possession, etc.

No documented Canadian cases of cannabis laced with opioids: Ontario Harm Reduction Network

Despite the discovery of a "product resembling cannabis" that was actually carfentanil, there are no documented cases of opioids being found in marijuana in Canada, according to the Ontario Harm Reduction Network (OHRN).

Some public health organizations and police forces have issued the warnings after the substance¬†‚ÄĒ which, despite looking like cannabis from a distance, actually contains no marijuana¬†‚ÄĒ was discovered in southern Ontario.

However, Thunder Bay Drug Strategy coodinator Cynthia Olsen said the OHRN has issued a statement about the substance out of concern that the warnings are giving the impression that cannabis containing opioids has been found in Canada.

Can you take cannabis to hotels in legal states?

Legalization in North America has raised many questions. For example, can you take cannabis to your hotel room when on vacation? The age of cannabis legalization is most certainly upon us, with Canada being the most recent on the list to legalize the herb for both medical and recreational. However, in most states where cannabis is legal, on whatever level, consumption is limited to private spaces; usually at home.

Even in states where cannabis is legal, it’s not alright to light up a joint in a club, bar or restaurant, or any similar public space. This doesn’t apply across the board, but for the most part, people enjoy their cannabis in the comfort of their own home.
