It is extremely crucial for you to only buy from trusted dispensaries in Canada. This means that you will know the exact dosage and potency of each cannabis strain, making a better smoking experience for you.
You will also be happy to know that you can grow your own cannabis garden at home if you wish. However, you can only do so for personal use only. You don’t want to accidentally be labelled a weed dealer, do you?
Legally, you can grow 4 marijuana plants at home per household. If you are living with your girlfriend and she smokes cannabis as well, you can still only grow up to four cannabis plants, not eight.
What is the penalty for growing more than 4 plants in Canada?
The penalty for growing more cannabis plants than you are allowed will depend. You can be hit with a hefty fine between $2000 to $10,000. You could even be subjected to jail time between 3 to 12 months!
If you really think about it, the Cannabis Act of Canada is pretty simple to understand.
Then, the Provincial Act came along to make things a lot more complicated for the average cannabis user.
For one, this new Act meant that each Canadian territory now had their own laws on who can legally use cannabis.
You must be at least 19 years old to use cannabis in the following provinces: BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Yukon Territory & Northwest Territories (NWT)
Those who live in Alberta & Quebec can be 18 to use marijuana.
Now, if you live in Alberta and decided to go to Nova Scotia for vacation, it could certainly lead to confusion on whether you can legally use cannabis.
