Where Can Cannabis be Consumed?▼
There are many places where people cannot smoke in Quebec, and it varies from region to region. Many apartments may also ban smoking. In some towns, public smoking may be off-limits altogether. The general rule is that smoking is off-limits in public spaces. This includes schools, public buildings, parks, and state-operated and some private facilities.
The best place to smoke will be inside a residence. Smoking marijuana generally follows the same guidelines as smoking tobacco.
Is Drug Testing Legal in Quebec?▼
Drug testing is legal in Quebec, but there must be a legitimate reason for performing the test and the employee's rights must not be violated. The act that legalized recreational cannabis in Quebec, Bill 157, states that any worker may not consume cannabis if it puts themselves or others at risk in the line of work.
Many workplaces where drug use could pose a serious danger, do not permit marijuana consumption. If the test is required to uphold these rules, then employers may drug test.
Is Cannabis Delivery Legal in Quebec?▼
Due to the low number of stores, many will want to turn to online delivery for recreational cannabis, which will also be legal in the province. The systems and laws are already in place. Canada Post has been delivering medical marijuana to cardholders since 2013. The recipient must be present and sign for the package upon delivery, otherwise the package will not be delivered.
How Is Cannabis Paid for in Quebec Dispensaries?▼
With the national passage of the Cannabis Act, banks are now able to offer their lines of service to companies in and around the cannabis industry. This means that individuals may use debit and credit cards when paying for marijuana, as opposed to largely cash-based markets in the United States. Cash will still be an accepted method of payment.
