Saskatchewan is located right in the heart of Canada and the province has so much to offer, such as scenic destinations like Grasslands National Park and Prince Albert National Park.
From October 17, 2018, recreational cannabis became legal across the nation, so you can enjoy weed before taking in the sights.
But, hold on a sec! Cannabis rules differ from one region to another, so read on and learn a few things that you need to know about the Saskatchewan cannabis rules and regulations.
The Legal Age of Smoking Weed
Unless you are at least 19 or older, don’t try to smoke cannabis in Saskatchewan.
Any underage person caught smoking weed faces stiff fines or even criminal charges in the province.
Anyone found selling weed to a minor faces even more severe consequences and the possibility of serving time in jail.
To be sure that you will be allowed to buy weed in Saskatchewan, have your ID with you to prove that you are of age.
Public Possession Rules
The weed possession rules rarely differ across Canada, and the maximum weed you can carry in public in Saskatchewan is 30 grams.
If measurements in grams give you a headache, consider the public possession limit to be approximately an ounce.
That also happens to be the maximum quantity of weed that you can buy at one go.
Storage Rules at Home
Don’t be sad because you are allowed to buy only an ounce of weed during one transaction in Saskatchewan.
You can store as much cannabis as you want at home, so, if you wish, you can buy an ounce every day and keep it all at home.
Just be sure to store your prized stash properly at home so that it doesn’t spoil or be within reach of your kids and pets.
Where to Buy Legal Weed in Saskatchewan
You can only buy weed legally from the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority, or from any of the private retailers that have been licensed by the SLGA.
You also have the option of buying weed online, so if you don’t feel like taking a walk or driving to a brick and mortar store, simply place your order online and the cannabis will be delivered to you.
Home Grows of Weed
Yes, you can grow your own recreational weed in Saskatchewan. The province is similar to many others that chose to adopt the provision of the Cannabis Act that allows each household to have a maximum of four plants for recreational use.
If you live in a multi-dwelling facility like an apartment or a condo, check with your landlord to confirm that it is okay to grow your plants on the property.
Most landlords will have no objection, but don’t assume that is the case until you get confirmation from your landlord.
Do you think that four plants is a joke or a lack of understanding of your needs? Don’t worry, we got you covered.
We at ACMPRlicence.ca can help you to obtain a Health Canada licence allowing you to grow as many medical cannabis plants as you need for your treatment.
