The Nova Scotia government has formed two working groups to get into the weeds of marijuana legalization, but the province’s plans remain a little hazy.
The federal task force on marijuana legalization released a report this week recommending mail-order and storefront sales to people over the age of 18, with a 30-gram limit on personal possession of recreational pot.
The report contained more than 80 recommendations about how legalized marijuana should be produced, regulated and sold.
Premier Stephen McNeil, and three departments heading a federal-provincial-territorial working group on the province’s marijuana legalization strategy, will not comment on any of them.
The Departments of Justice, Health and Wellness and Finance and Treasury Board are the senior officials in a working group on the legalization, and regulation of cannabis in the province.
“We’ve just received the report and are reviewing the task force’s recommendations,” Sarah Gillis, a spokesperson for the Department of Justice, said in a statement Wednesday.
