Cannabis Legislation and Schools

As you are aware through media coverage, effective October 17, 2018, the Federal Cannabis Act will permit Canadians to purchase, grow, and possess cannabis and related products for recreational purposes.
The BC government has enacted the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act (CCLA) as well as the Cannabis Distribution Act, which regulate how cannabis may be sold, distributed, and consumed in British Columbia once it is legalized. The legislation includes significant restrictions aimed at preventing access to cannabis by minors under the age of 19. Please see the letter below from SD8 Superintendent, Christine Perkins.
