Legal Age: 19

The Basics

If you live in Manitoba or visiting the province, the legal age is 19 years old to smoke marijuana. Be careful, even though it’s legal, it remains illegal to offer cannabis to anyone under the legal age. Also, you have the right to carry 30 grams of legal dried cannabis and, you can share up to 30 grams of legal cannabis with other adults in Canada. Hey, sharing is caring, I’m glad they’re using that term! Even though you can buy marijuana from stores, edibles will still remain illegal to sell.

Where to Buy Marijuana

If you are looking for a place to buy cannabis, you can only buy marijuana products from licensed retailers. Manitoba government has a private sector retail model with regulation. The Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority and wholesale distribution through Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation.

Now if you’re visiting the stores, bring your ID with you. They will be verifying the age of anyone who appears under 30 years old before granting you permission to the sales area. As well as, the online retail website will have an age verification process when entering the site, at the time of sale and at product delivery.

Operating a Vehicle

Manitoba Laws state that smoking and driving is illegal and considered as driving under the influence (DUI). Driving while marijuana or other intoxicants are present in your system is dangerous to you and others. So, don’t smoke and drive! Also, while in a vehicle, if you have marijuana with you make sure it’s in a closed package and not within reach of the vehicle driver or any passenger.

Where can I Smoke ?

Manitoba Laws has its limits. Now obviously, there are many places we can’t smoke such as playgrounds, school grounds, sports fields, childcare centers, parks and any public places. Therefore, for those who take the bus, be careful! It’s prohibited to smoke in bus shelters, bicycle paths, or on the grounds of Universities or Colleges. It’s pretty simple, you can’t use a vaporizer or smoke cannabis where the law prohibits the use of tobacco.

Here’s where it hurts, if you don’t follow one of these laws, you can receive a cannabis offense which could result in a fine ranging from $2,000 to $100,000, imprisonment of 3 to 12 months, or both. Consenquently, no one deserves this kind of punishment, so please make sure you follow the laws and smoke wisely!
