Weed Laws in Vancouver
British Columbia, Canada, home of the BC Bud of cannabis lore, has had legal access to adult use marijuana since Oct. 17, 2018. The British Columbia Legislative Assembly in August 2018 passed Bill 30 – 2018: Cannabis Control and Licensing Act, which governs adult-use marijuana.
The legal limit for THC in the bloodstream is two (2) nanograms per milliliter. A nanogram is one-billionth of a gram. Concentrations between two (2) and five (5) nanograms result in a fine up to $1,000. Concentrations of 5 or more nanograms will result in a $1,000 minimum fine on the first offense, imprisonment of 30 days or more on a second offense, and 120 days or more on a third offense. Drug-impaired driving accidents can range from 18 months to as much as life imprisonment for a fatal accident.
How Much Weed You Can Possess in Vancouver
BC’s minimum age to possess, purchase and consume cannabis will be set at 19 years old. This is the same minimum age for alcohol and tobacco and with the age of majority in B.C.
If you are of legal age, you can purchase non-medical cannabis through privately run retail stores or government-operated retail stores and online sales.
You are allowed to possess up to 30 grams of recreational marijuana in a public place – that’s approximately the amount of what you could fit in a beer can.
What to Do in Vancouver after You Get Some Weed
City of Peace. Gastown. Vansterdam. Vancouver goes by a variety of nicknames and it’s a substantially-sized city with a population of more than 600,000. One thing that adds to the appeal of this city (which, by the way, is considered one of the most liveable cities in the world as it’s notable for its contributions to innovation and sustainability), is that it has small-town charm and appeal. It’s more subdued than some other retreats in Canada, making it an absolute paradise if you are looking for things to do in Vancouver while you’re stoned!
