The federal government has introduced legislation to legalize cannabis by July 2018. Alberta can decide how it will adapt to this legislation.
While the federal legislation outlines broad policy, the provinces have a role in determining how cannabis will be distributed and consumed. Other areas of focus are to keep profits away from criminals, keep cannabis out of the hands of children and youth, and protect roads, workplaces and public health.
Albertans are invited to learn more about cannabis and to share their input which will inform how Alberta adapts to legalization.
Message from the Minister
Minister Kathleen Ganley invites you to provide your input on Alberta’s approach to cannabis legalization.
