  • BC sets minimum age to buy marijuana at 19

The government considered input from the public and stakeholders from September 25 to November 1, on a range of issues related to the regulation of non-medical cannabis in B.C.

The province says B.C. still has a number of "key decisions to make" as it prepares for the legalization of marijuana on July 1, 2018.

Next July, British Columbians over 19 will be allowed to buy weed that's controlled by the province's liquor distribution branch, the government revealed Tuesday.

Final decisions are still pending about retail sales, but officials said they expect pot to be available in a mix of public and private stores.

"Looking at the responses received, it's clear that British Columbians support the priorities of protecting young people, health and safety, keeping the criminal element out of cannabis and keeping roads safe, which will guide the province in developing B.C.'s regulatory framework for non-medical cannabis", said Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth in a release.

Those include the legal age for use, which matches B.C.'s minimum age for tobacco and alcohol, and how wholesale distribution will be handled across the province.

"The proposals all suck", Troy, who declined to provide his last name, said.

Ontario intends to sell the drug in up to 150 stores run by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario and ban consumption in public spaces or workplaces.

Further details on the rules for recreational pot in B.C. won't be released until early 2018.

Nearly 50,000 B.C. residents and 141 local and Indigenous governments made submissions to a consultation process ahead of the federal government's legalization of non-medical cannabis in July 2018.

"This isn't the cannabis I want representing our country", she said.
