NWT Cannabis Legislation

NWT are currently working on the framework for new cannabis laws and requirements. The following is what has been proposed:

  • Determine the amount that adults are allowed to purchase
  • The law needs to protect young people from marijuana temptation and restrict the age
  • Be able to regulate and conduct quality control for the cannabis
  • Discourage cannabis use while at work
  • Determine new smoking in public laws
  • Develop public education on cannabis health risks
  • Provide a retail model that is safe and secure
  • Establish a way for local retails to have distribution
  • Set restrictions on consumption
