Arrested for growing and selling Marijuana?

Question:

Arrested for growing and selling Marijuana or Cannabis?

Answer:

Marijuana (marihuana, pot, cannabis) is set to become legal in Canada on October 17, 2018, but that doesn’t mean that it’s legal yet. Even when it is becomes legal, the purchase, sale, possession, and production of the drug will be heavily regulated. Here are some of the important laws that are anticipated to apply in Ontario:

  • In order to legally purchase, consume, or grow marijuana, you will need to be 19 years of age
  • You will only be able to consume it in a private residence
  • You will only be able to possess 30 grams of dried marihuana; and
  • You will only be able to grow four plants at any given residence

If you have been arrested and charged with any charges in relation to marijuana, or any other drugs under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, Lockyer Campbell Posner can help you to avoid a criminal conviction.
