New Brunswick’s finance minister is looking forward to the Trudeau government’s response to a federal task force’s recommendations on legalizing marijuana.
Cathy Rogers said the report is a “significant step forward” in providing direction for the federal government with respect to legalization.
The task force recommends pot not be available where alcohol or tobacco are sold, that it not be sold to anyone under the age of 18, and that there be personal growing limits of four plants per person.
“Legalization is a federal initiative,” said Rogers. “The implications, however, are significant for provincial governments.”
Rogers said the provinces and territories must understand the federal government’s direction before they can make solid plans or react in detail.
