N.L.’s new Cannabis Control Act sets driving penalties, fines for public and underage use

  • Much of Newfoundland and Labrador’s new recreational marijuanapolicy focuses on cannabis and driving, as the province gets ready for legalization by the federal government.
  • We’re making great progress and we will be ready for whatever date is set, said Justice Minister Andrew Parsons on Monday as he announced the provincial Cannabis Control Act and changes to related legislation, including the Highway Traffic Act, the Smoke-Free Environment Act and the Liquor Control Act.
  • This legalization of cannabis for recreational use is one of the most significant policy shifts for Canada since we joined Confederation, said Finance Minister Tom Osborne at the news conference in St. John’s.
  • The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and the RCMP are using money previously announced by the federal government for officer training, said Parsons, who added that the province is in a good position on field sobriety testing and he is comfortable with current training numbers.
  • Under the new legalization, a person will be prohibited from possessing more than 30 grams of cannabis, or a flowering or budding cannabis plant, in a public place.
