On Sept. 12, Pontiac MP Will Amos held a forum on the legalization of cannabis at the Pontiac Conference Centre in Fort Coulonge.
Amos was joined by his colleague and parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Health, Joël Lightbound, to lay out their party’s plan for legal marijuana to a dozen assembled residents.
Bill C-45, Canada’s new Cannabis Act, is scheduled to take effect in July 2018. The legislation imposes two new criminal offenses for selling or giving marijuana to minors with maximum penalties of 14 years in jail. The act also sets strict guidelines for how the drug can be sold, packaged and marketed.
