Cannabis will be a legal product in Canada on October 17, 2018, albeit with rigorous regulatory restrictions, including highly restrictive packaging and advertising rules. Individuals 18 years or older may legally possess up to 30 grams of cannabis and grow up to four cannabis plants in their private residence. Permitted forms of cannabis will include dried, fresh and oils, with edibles likely to be added in a year. Cannabis accessories and services will also be regulated. In addition, Health Canada announced new regulations under the federal Cannabis Act that allows provisions for medical users to be able to access the product.
