Canada legalized cannabis just under two months ago, but edibles still remain as illegal as ever- that is, until Oct. 17, 2019, which is when the Trudeau government plans to legalize cannabis edibles and concentrates.
But MJ Biz Daily has reported some promising news, just in time for Christmas- we can expect to see the draft regulations for edibles and concentrates sometime this month!
These regulations, which will outline the sale and production of edibles and concentrates, are being eagerly awaited by entrepreneurs, corporations, and regular Canadians alike, and they will be published in the Canada Gazette, the official newspaper of the Canadian government.
An anonymous source told MJ Biz Daily:
“We have until Oct. 17, 2019, but with the expectation of the election next October, it would mean we would have to have CG2, which is the final version of the regulations, out well before the election.”
That election, by the way, is Canada’s 43rd federal election, which is scheduled for Oct. 21, 2019- a mere four days after edibles are concentrates are slated to be legalized, meaning that edibles may very well become a big issue this election.
