Can you consume cannabis edibles in public?

Region: Ontario Answer Number: 2365

Consuming edibles in public

It will not be legal to sell edible cannabis products (such as brownies, and tea), or to consume them in public (in provinces where cannabis use is allowed), until sometime in 2019. This is to allow the Federal Government time to develop regulations for the production and sale of edibles.

In addition, some provinces have banned all forms of cannabis consumption in public, which will include consuming edibles when they become legal, along with smoking and vaping cannabis. Provinces where public consumption of cannabis will not be allowed are: Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, PEI, Saskatchewan and Yukon.

Consuming edibles at home

Across Canada, individuals who have reached the age of 18 or 19 (depending on the province), can add cannabis to food or drinks at home as long as they do not sell the products, or share them with someone under the legal age for cannabis consumption in that province.
