Cannabis Legislation in Saskatchewan – Effective When? (Update)

Posted on Updated on

by Ken Fox 

On October 2, 2018, I made a wager that The Cannabis Control (Saskatchewan) Act, SS 2018, c C-2.111, would be proclaimed “somewhere in the vicinity of October 17,” the day the federal Cannabis Act comes into force. Well, I lost the bet.

The act will not be effective in the vicinity of October 17, but exactly on October 17, otherwise known as tomorrow. I’m glad all that was at stake was my dignity! Section 7-6 came into force on May 30. Section 7-10, which updates Clause 293(2)(b) of the Municipalities Act, has not yet been proclaimed.

The original post has been duly updated.
