GNWT Cannabis Legislation. Share your views Sept 19, 2017

The Government of Canada has introduced the proposed Cannabis Act and has made a public commitment to legalize cannabis by July 2018. The proposed Act would set the national framework for cannabis legalization while giving provinces and territories the authority to establish measures to control sale and distribution, minimum age for purchase and consumption, drug-impaired driving, workplace safety, public smoking of cannabis and more.

The GNWT is committed to having effective measures in place to protect the health and safety of our people and communities and wants to hear from Northerners on the best ways to do it.

The GNWT wants to know what you think so the new laws will make sense for the NWT. GNWT officials will be in the following communities to get your view on the issues surrounding the legalization of cannabis:
