Provincial legislation reaffirms the federal restriction of 30 grams as the maximum legal amount of cannabis an individual can possess in public. Adults 19 years of age or older in Ontario may possess over 30 grams in a private residential dwelling.
Canada’s Cannabis Act legalized the consumption, possession an purchase of up to 30 grams of cannabis for recreational use for adults 18 years of age or older. In Ontario, recreational cannabis is only available for purchase by adults 19 years of age or older and only through Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS). It is still illegal to purchase cannabis from non-licensed sources.
