Public Asked to Provide Input on Legalization of Cannabis

Provinces and territories have discretion to establish local regulations and restrictions. Decisions must be made on matters including where cannabis may be sold, who may purchase it, and whether certain laws should be updated or changed in the interests of public health and safety.

To assist in making those decisions, the Provincial Government is seeking input from residents through an online questionnaire on the legalization of cannabis in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Residents who wish to participate can visit external link. They will be required to create an account before responding but all responses will be anonymous and kept confidential. The questionnaire will close on June 30.

This questionnaire marks the launch of engageNL, the Provincial Government’s new tool that will be used for online engagement. Once residents have created an account, they will be able to participate in any future online consultations launched by government.

Residents who are unable to complete the questionnaire online may request a written version by emailing or calling 709-729-3103.
