New Brunswick's legislative framework concerning cannabis was introduced in November 2017.
Residents of New Brunswick are allowed to grow up to four cannabis plants that can be cultivated outdoors as long as they are kept in a locked enclosure with minimum height of 1.52 meters.
When storing cannabis at home, adults must keep the product in a locked container away from the reach of minors.
The Cannabis Management Corporation is responsible for the oversight, organization, conduct, management, and control of retail sales of recreational-use cannabis. Cannabis NB, a new subsidiary of NB Liquor, is the exclusive retailer of cannabis in New Brunswick.
The New Brunswick government has signed supply deals with five licensed producers.
