Canada legalized the recreational use of cannabis on December 17, 2018. That means the drug is now legal in Canada with some restrictions.
Canadians are legally allowed to buy it from a licensed retailer or grow up to four plants per household for personal use. There is a ban on smoking cannabis in public places and you cannot carry cannabis over international borders.
The Cannabis Act sets a minimum age of 18 to buy cannabis in Canada. But you have to be at least 19 years old to purchase from a federal producer or possess over 30 grams of dried cannabis. Retailers will have a set limit on how much they can sell at once, according to their provincial distribution rules.
