Details of the proposed Alberta Cannabis Framework were released today at a conference in Calgary.
The framework proposes who will be able to buy and use cannabis once it is legal, as well as where they will be able to buy it and use it, in an effort to manage the drug.
Kathleen Ganley, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General had this to say on the framework, “I’d like to thank every Albertan who participated in our various engagements regarding cannabis legalization over the summer. With your input, we’ve drafted a proposed framework to manage legalized cannabis in our province. We look forward to receiving additional feedback from Albertans on this framework.”
Ganley noted the four main priorities of the draft are to protect children, promote public safety on roads, in workplaces and in public spaces, protect public health, and limiting the illicit market.
Th minimum legal age to buy and use cannabis will be 18, and the buying, selling, and use of it will be overseen by the government the same way tobacco products are now.
The full detailed framework is available online, and Albertans are encouraged to provide feedback to the government.
