One of the most commonly asked questions we get, is surrounding dispensaries. Our answer is always the same, “dispensaries are illegal in Canada”. Since these questions keep popping up, here’s a refresher on current cannabis laws in Canada:
- Dispensaries and compassion clubs are illegal in Canada. Medical or recreational cannabis cannot be purchased legally through any such business.
- Recreational cannabis is still illegal in Canada, but legalization is set for July 1, 2018.
- Medical cannabis prescriptions must be obtained through a licensed physician.
- Medical cannabis must be obtained through one of the 52 Licensed Producers in Canada.
