The province of Saskatchewan is taking baby steps towards legalizing marijuana.
Minister of Justice and Attorney General Don Morgan said Thursday the province looking at introducing legislation regarding legal marijuana, but not until they clear a hurdle about it’s availability.
“The Ministry of the Economy will be coming out with some pieces (of legislation) regarding it’s distribution in the market.”
- ‘Overwhelming.’ Sask. government surprised at enormous response to marijuana legalization survey
- Marijuana could be legal in Canada by July 1, 2018; Saskatchewan gov has questions
- WCB encouraging Sask. businesses to prepare workplace policies for marijuana
Another hurdle needed to be cleared is regarding marijuana and impaired driving, something Morgan says is being addressed by Minister Joe Hargrave and SGI.
Morgan also goes on to say the government will be closely monitoring the developments in Alberta and Quebec, both of whom have tabled marijuana legalization legislation.
