With the changes on October 17, 2018, we have been taking a lot of calls in relation to Cannabis. We encourage everyone to know their rights – ignorance or naivete are not acceptable reasons for breaking the law.

MEDIA RELEASE ON LEGALIZATION OF CANNABIS
*The Cannabis Act, 2017 was passed in December 2017.
UCCM Anishnaabe Police are reminding the public that the new Cannabis Legislation is coming into effect on October 17th, 2018. Although the Cannabis Act essentially decriminalizes possession the use of small amount of recreational cannabis, it creates new Criminal Code offences for selling cannabis to minors.
In Ontario the provincial rules highlight the following facts;
- The minimum age to use, purchase, and possess recreational cannabis in Ontario is 19. The use of recreational cannabis will be prohibited in public places and workplaces
- Originally, the Liquor Control Board of Ontario was to oversee the sale of cannabis in the province via stand-alone, government-owned Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) and an on-line order service. Subsequently, the government elected during the 2018 Provincial Election announced that private retailers and mail order distributions would be allowed. OCS stores will also not be operational until April 2019
- Ontario will prohibit individuals under the age of 19 from possessing or consuming recreational cannabis, which will allow police to confiscate small amounts of cannabis from young people. The province’s approach to protecting youth will focus on prevention, diversion, and harm reduction without unnecessarily bringing them into contact with the justice system. The government proposed to support young people and vulnerable populations through the development of an “integrated prevention and harm reduction approach” that would promote awareness of cannabis-related health harms and help people make informed decisions about use. It will include education, health, and social service providers that work with, and educate, youth, and young adults.
Additionally, under the proposed model First Nation communities would be able to opt-out of cannabis deliveries and retail stores.
UCCM Police continue to believe that inappropriate use and abuse of controlled and legal substances, including cannabis, has a serious impact on the safety and wellness of our communities which leads to a wide spectrum of violent acts and property crimes.
