Cannabis Legalization

Artboard 1

On Oct. 17, 2018, recreational cannabis will be legal in Canada. Each province and municipality will have a different set of rules, but here's what legalization means in Brooks. 

Be a courteous and responsible cannabis user. Know the rules:

  • Smoking and vaping are not allowed in public places in Brooks.  Think about it just like alcohol - if you choose to use, keep it at home.
  • There are no regulations governing cannabis odour. However, stay conscious of how those around you may be impacted by the smoke and smell of your cannabis use.
  • You must be 18+ to buy, use, possess and grow cannabis. Kids may not enter cannabis stores, even with an adult.
  • 30g of cannabis is the most you may carry in public or purchase at one time.
  • Adults may grow up to four plants per household. Growing must be done in your house only. Not in your detached garage, shed, greenhouse, garden or anywhere else on your property. 
  • Keep cannabis products out of reach of anyone in a vehicle. Driving while impaired by cannabis is illegal.
