Ask 420: How does cannabis legalization compare to tobacco?

Q: How does cannabis legalization in Canada compare to tobacco legislation?

A: The two acts (Tobacco Act and the proposed Cannabis Act) in Canada differ in many areas, but they are similar in their focus on restricting youth access, enhancing awareness and advertising restrictions.

The proposed Cannabis Act contains promotion and packaging prohibitions similar to those in the Tobacco Act, and includes an amendment to the Non-smokers’ Health Act to align cannabis restrictions with those in place for tobacco smoking – such as smoking restrictions in the workplace or on public transit.
