Quebec's Court of Appeal agreed with the Quebec Government's ban on home-grown cannabis. This reversed the previous Superior Court ruling in 2019 which said the Quebec Government's ban on home-grown cannabis was a violation of federal law.

"A provincial government that denies its citizens the right to grow their four federally legal cannabis plants is on a slippery slope to removing other personal freedoms," said Dr. Av Singh, one of TobaGrown's expert witnesses.

The outcome of Quebec's lawsuit will hold substantial weight in the similar case in Manitoba, where Jesse Lavoie started the "TobaGrown Movement" and filed a lawsuit against the Manitoba Government's ban on home-grown cannabis in August 2020.
