Cannabis Law and Order
Its legal to travel throughout Canada with your cannabis as long as it is contained in the original sealed packaged that it was purchased in. It is not legal to leave the country or to cross any international borders with Cannabis in tow. Better safe than sorry and leave your Cannabis at home. Remember to check the canada.ca website to get the most current iteration of the regulations.
Not yet. Once the Cannabis retail laws are relaxed you can bet we’ll be first in line for a delivery service.
No not yet but we do offer Click and Collect where you can order from the comfort of your home and then stop by the shop to pay and pick up. As of today only government owned cannabis retailers can provide full mail order service. When this changes we’ll be the first to let you know!
This is a tough one. Many people have been consuming cannabis responsibly for years and are confident in their ability to maintain full functionality after consuming. The challenge lies within establishing a level of cannabinoid detection that is a reasonable indicator for intoxication and thus impairment. This is a case of better safe than sorry and its another area of policy where we at the Village Bloomery are advocating for clarity.
BC has legislated that children- no matter what age- are not allowed in Cannabis retail shops. We are looking at ways to support parents to get fair access so this is an issue we are working on both in terms of government relations as well as internal policy options.
You might. It depends on your landlord. We encourage you to approach this with kid gloves…which just means carefully! We wrote a little blog that could act as a guide for such a situation.
In BC the rules that apply to cigarette smoking apply to smoking cannabis. If you own your own detached home you can consume any time you like. That said if you are a renter you will have to get approval from your landlord to consume or if you live in a townhouse or condo you will have to heed the bylaws of your strata. BC has a long history of a relaxed attitude around cannabis consumption so it’s unclear how much energy bylaw officers and the police department are going to dedicate to enforcing these laws but it’s better safe than sorry.! We recommend that you engage your strata and landlords in an open discussion to help educate and inform those who have fears and concerns. Many people do not know that vaporizers are a good alternative to smoking dried flowers indoors as the odor is greatly reduced as is the risk of fire.
