Nova Scotia Launches Website Detailing Provincial Cannabis Laws

The Nova Scotian government has launched a microsite to help provide information on responsible use and  the legal ramifications of cannabis after it becomes legal in the province on Oct. 17th

The government had also taken to social media to get their messaging across, posting tweets such as these that point to the site:

The site itself lists the regulations and laws pertaining to cannabis use in the province, as information on responsible use, health effects, impaired driving and how to talk to your kid about the substance.

The laws are fairly standard when it comes to provincial policy for Canadian legalization. These include the 19 and up age requirement, the limit of 30 dried grams in public and the fact that the drug can only be legally purchased from a designated Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation store.

As stated on the site, these laws only apply after the Oct. 17th legalization date, and until that time, recreational use is still prohibited.

Latest.

In the past few months, the stream of alarming news about the dangers of vaporizer cartridges has put some cannabis consumers on high alert. Since March, more than 2,000 people have gotten sick, and 40 people have died from illnesses related to vaping (VAPI, or vaping associated pulmonary injury). It is believed that the large majority of those who had become ill had used THC oil carts bought from illicit markets.

Can we see some ID please?
