The government of Newfoundland & Labrador provided a first look at their upcoming cannabis policies in November 2017.
Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador will be able to grow their own plants, as per federal legislation. When transporting cannabis, it must be kept in its original packaging with unbroken seal and not readily available to the vehicle’s occupants.
Cannabis NL, a subsidiary of the Newfoundland Labrador Liquor Corporation, will be responsible for distribution and online sales.
