How will legal pot be sold in B.C.? Province still hazy on answers (Dr. M-J Milloy)
The federal Liberals have finally said when marijuana will be legal in Canada — July 1, 2018 — but just how the drug will be sold above-board in B.C. remains unclear.
Under legislation expected next month, the provinces will decide the price of pot, as well as how marijuana products are distributed and sold.
“I think what we'll end up seeing is the provinces setting the age limit consistent [with] alcohol,” said M-J Milloy, a marijuana researcher at the University of B.C. Department of Medicine and B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.
