NL Cannabis Laws

In this province you must be at least 19 years old to purchase, consume or possess cannabis that can only be legally purchased from the licensed private retailers that are up and running or online through the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation’s web portal.

Cannabis is not permitted for use in public places or inside vehicles. To align with federal laws, residents are able to grow up to four plants per private residence and are allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis in public.

Of course, driving while impaired remains a serious criminal offence with zero tolerance under provincial law for anyone under 22 – just as with alcohol. There is also zero tolerance for novice drivers and drivers of commercial motor vehicles.
