Ontario Seeking Public Input on Federal Plan to Legalize Cannabis

Ministry of the Attorney General - The province is asking for your thoughts on how Ontario should approach cannabis legalization in a way that protects youth, prevents harm and ensures that Ontario's roads continue to be among the safest in North America.

The federal plan calls on the provinces and territories to establish a framework to regulate the distribution, sale and consumption of cannabis, among other matters.
