Saskatchewan’s Responsibilities

In order to develop a legalization framework in Saskatchewan, we are seeking input from the public. The results of this survey will aid the Government of Saskatchewan in creating the best possible framework for its citizens. The framework will be guided by several overarching objectives, which include but are not limited to: 
  1. Restricting the illegal cannabis market; 
  2. Keeping cannabis out of the hands of children and youth;
  3. Protecting public and personal health and safety; and, 
  4. Promoting safety on roads, in workplaces, and in public spaces. 

Each province can adopt the following minimum regulations or can implement stronger controls to deal with local issues, such as: 

  1. Increase restrictions on certain federal regulations.  For example, Saskatchewan could maintain the minimum age of 18 or increase it to 19 or older.  
  2. The province could also choose to reduce the maximum number of plants allowed to be grown in a private residence, to less than four.
  3. Create laws and policy on specific topics, including:
  • Distribution;
  • Retail sales;
  • Taxation;
  • Public consumption, including in public spaces;
  • Impaired driving; and, 
  • Workplaces 

The Government of Saskatchewan has recently updated drug and alcohol impaired driving laws to promote zero tolerance for new drivers and drivers who are 21 years of age and under. We are working with other provinces and the federal government to develop and strengthen road-side testing for drug-impaired driving.
