4 Questions Around Marijuana Legalization in B.C.


Driving laws and fate of dispensaries are still big questions — not to mention the legalization date.

Solicitor General Mike Farnworth announced three pieces of legislation Thursday that form the backbone of B.C.’s new regulations around marijuana.

“Today marks a milestone in this process,” Farnworth said.

But he also cautioned that B.C.’s policy framework around the soon-to-be legalized drug wasn’t set in stone, with the government accepting it would have to be flexible with such a large change to a product that many have used, made, or distributed illegally for decades.
