Government of New Brunswick

As the federal government legalizes cannabis, New Brunswick’s priorities remain on protecting the health and safety of vulnerable populations and getting the product out of the hands of criminals. While focusing on priority areas we will take full advantage of economic opportunities that this new industry offers.  


Until federal legislation comes into effect on October 17, 2018, it is still against the law to possess, consume, cultivate or sell adult-use cannabis in New Brunswick. And even once legal, like tobacco and alcohol, there will be regulations around its use.
