MEDICAL CANNABIS & QUEBEC
To help Medical Patients consumers navigate the long list of new regulations, we've compiled a list of some of the strangest and most contradictory rules in the province of Quebec:
Edibles are still illegal
That's actually according to federal law. Marijuana-infused food or drink will be forbidden for at least one year after the legalization of other types of weed-consumption...
No marijuana stores within 250 meters of a school...except in Montreal
It is illegal to sell or give weed to a minor. So what does proximity matter? According to the logic of the law, Montreal students will have more access to marijuana because they are physically closer to the retail locations. This is an inherent contradiction...
You can NOT grow plants yourself
The SQDC will have a monopoly on marijuana distribution. Only licensed contractors that supply to the SQDC or medical patient of Heath Canada will be able to grow. But as long as individuals don't sell their product, what does it matter if a private citizen wants to grow their own legal 4 plants supply?
There are actually few places where smoking is actually allowed
Marijuana consumption is forbidden in any and all "enclosed spaces" open to the public, including "common areas in residential buildings." You may only be able to smoke in your own home and in remote areas of parks, far away from popular paths or any space children might gather.
