The Cannabis Act, which creates a strict legal framework controlling the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis, came into effect on October 17, 2018.

In advance of the legalization of cannabis, the Halton Regional Police Service worked diligently, both internally and with our regional and municipal partners, to prepare for the legalization of cannabis.

We recognize that the introduction of Bill C-45 has prompted questions from the community regarding traffic safety, and the specifics of how cannabis can be consumed, purchased, grown and distributed. In this regard, we have compiled a number of resources here to assist in navigating these topics.
