Cannabis Legalization and Regulation

What Manitobans said

Manitoba consulted with Manitobans and the results of that survey helped aid the Manitoba government in creating the best possible framework for its citizens. Several objectives helped guide the framework, including: 

  • restricting the illegal cannabis market 
  • keeping cannabis out of the hands of children and youth
  • protecting the public and personal health and safety 
  • promoting safety on roads, in workplaces and in public spaces
