Saskatchewan Marijuana Laws

Saskatchewan Cannabis Law Overview

Saskatchewan has fairly relaxed laws surrounding cannabis when compared with other Canadian provinces. This is largely in part to Saskatchewan’s remoteness, as the province is incentivized to encourage cannabis industry growth to maintain provincial growth and budgetary commitments. Entrepreneurial opportunities are

Adults 18 and older may carry up to 30 grams of dried cannabis flower or its equivalent in all non-restricted public places. Adults may share cannabis with other adults, however selling is not allowed.

Cannabis Purchasing and Possession Limits

The Canadian federal government has established a maximum public possession amount of 30 grams per adult consumer. Saskatchewan has decided to maintain this limit within the province. Officers will have the discretion to address minor offences, like carrying over the maximum limit, by serving a citation and a fine of $200.

Cannabis and Minors

Underage possession of more than five grams of dried cannabis is a criminal offence and subject to Youth Criminal Justice Act procedures and penalties.

Driving and Cannabis

In Saskatchewan, there are immediate and severe penalties for driving under the influence of cannabis. This is including but not limited to:

  • Significant license suspension periods
  • Vehicle seizures lasting three to 60 days maximum
  • Requirements by the court to complete drug education programs
  • Stiff financial penalties under the Safe Driver Recognition Program

 

Police can legally summon a field sobriety test at roadside or a drug recognition evaluation if they have reasonable evidence to presume a driver is impaired.

Cannabis Growing Laws

Saskatchewan is adopting the federal minimum standards around home growing and production, including the limit of four cannabis plants grown per household.

Saskatchewan is continuing to explore additional rules around where cannabis can be grown. Issues concerning rental properties, multi-unit residences, and how cannabis can be grown, are still under discussion.
