Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Marijuana Ordering
Where can I get marijuana?
Only buy weed online from licensed by the Liquor, Gaming & Cannabis Authority of Manitoba can sell legal non-medical cannabis in Manitoba (LGCA). The LGCA will publish a list of licensed retail stores on October 17 at www.lgcamb.ca, where you may also learn more about Manitoba’s cannabis legislation and regulations.
What steps do I need to take to operate a cannabis store in Manitoba?
Manitoba capped the number of cannabis stores because it was concerned that there wouldn’t be enough supply from Health Canada-licensed producers and processors to meet demand on the day of legalization. Instead, Manitoba has employed competitive bidding processes to support limited cannabis retail, although these bidding processes have already closed.
Manitoba’s targeted end state is a competitive cannabis retail industry with a diverse range of shops offering customers a choice of brand affiliations, service quality, and pricing. As the non-medical cannabis market and supply chain grow, more chances to participate in the business will arise.
Is it legal for me to smoke or vape medical marijuana at work?
It is against the law to be inebriated at work if you are endangering yourself or others. Workplaces are accountable for establishing their own cannabis policy. Please check with your workplace to see what policies they have in place regarding medical and non-medical cannabis use.
What is the maximum amount of cannabis I can have at home?
In public, Manitobans aged 19 and above are allowed to possess up to 30 grams of non-medical cannabis. There is no limit on the amount of dried (or similar non-dry) non-medical cannabis that can be kept in a person’s residence under federal or provincial law. In Manitoba, however, growing non-medical cannabis at home is illegal.
What is the maximum amount of cannabis that a driver or passenger can possess?
Manitobans aged 19 and older are allowed to possess up to 30 grams of non-medical cannabis per person, as long as the cannabis is properly stowed in their cars.
What constitutes safe cannabis storage and transportation in a vehicle?
Cannabis must be stored in the trunk, an outside compartment, or any location in the vehicle designated for the carriage of products or baggage that is not readily accessible to any individual in the vehicle, according to the Highway Traffic Act.
Is it legal to smoke marijuana in my apartment or condo building?
The Smoking and Vapour Products Control Act prohibits smoking and vaping cannabis in common areas of residential buildings (hallways, elevators, stairways, lobbies, and so on), including apartments and condo buildings, but it leaves it up to Manitobans to decide whether or not they can smoke or vape in their suites. The property owner, governing board, or organization is responsible for this.
The property of multi-unit residential buildings will be subject to restrictions on smoking and vaping cannabis in public outdoor spaces. The building’s owner, however, may designate an outdoor space on the property that is at least 8 meters away from the building and any swimming pool where inhabitants of the building may smoke or vape cannabis.
Is it legal to smoke or vape marijuana on my condo balcony?
It is up to the property owner, governing board, or association to decide whether Manitobans can smoke or vape in their suites under the Smoking and Vapour Products Control Act.
Because a condo or apartment balcony is deemed part of a private suite, the building’s property owner, governing board, or association would be in charge of cannabis use on the balcony.
Is it possible to get cannabis delivered by courier?
Once licensed cannabis merchants are ready to sell cannabis, legal non-medical cannabis can be purchased online from them. Cannabis delivery is the responsibility of the retail stores. Please visit www.lgcamb.ca for additional information on online cannabis delivery requirements.
Is it safe to give CBD oil to my dog or cat?
Cannabis affects animals in various ways than it does humans. The Animal Care Act prohibits feeding a pet any legal intoxicant, including cannabis and alcohol, to the point of intoxication.
Consult a veterinarian if your pet has a medical issue. There are now only a handful of cannabis products that can be recommended to pets without risking their health.
How much will non-medical cannabis be legal?
Like any other retail firm in Manitoba, Manitoba’s private cannabis merchants will set their own prices based on their business goals. The goal is to keep prices competitive with the black market.
Will cannabis dispensaries also sell alcoholic beverages?
In Manitoba, cannabis and alcohol will not be sold side by side.
When will I be able to purchase edibles from a licensed retail store?
Beginning October 17, 2018, only cannabis fresh flower, dried flower, and oil will be authorized for sale in Canada by provincially registered merchants under the federal Cannabis Act. Until the federal government designs, introduces, and approves laws around the sale of edible/drinkable cannabis-based/infused goods, no edible products are legal for sale by any person or organization.
These restrictions are not likely to be implemented until 2019, at the earliest, therefore edible product sales will not begin until much later.
How will the cops know I’m authorized to vape or smoke my medical marijuana in public?
You must have your federal authorization on you at all times.
Will the legalization of non-medical cannabis affect the possession limitations for medical cannabis?
Following the legalization of non-medical cannabis, Health Canada’s existing medical cannabis program will remain in place, which means that the restrictions around medical cannabis possession will not change.
