Newfoundland and Labrador residents get cannabis questions answered online

September 25th, 2018

With non-medical cannabis going legal Oct. 17, Justice and Public Safety Minister Andrew Parsons says Newfoundlanders and Labradorians should visit to learn more about what the policy shift means and to find answers to their cannabis questions.

Parsons said the aim of passing provincial legislation was to provide access to a safe supply of legal cannabis and encouraging low-risk use by adults who choose to use it, while keeping it out of the hands of children; promote safety on the roads, in public places and workplaces; reduce the burden on the criminal justice system; keep profits from the sale of cannabis out of the hands of criminals and support new business opportunities.
