What is Cannabis?
Cannabis refers to products made from the leaves, flowers and resins of the cannabis plant. Other names for cannabis include marijuana or pot. Cannabis users smoke, vaporize, or add cannabis to food or drinks.
As of October 17, 2018, the sale and consumption of cannabis was made legal in Canada. There are new federal, provincial and municipal processes for cannabis production, sale and consumption. The legalization of cannabis will have many impacts. The Town of Olds has reviewed federal and provincial direction and legislation, to help manage the legalization of cannabis in the best interest of our community.
Please note that municipalities and provinces have different rules regarding cannabis. It is an individual's responsibility to ensure you know what is legal wherever you are.
