If you are 19 or older, you can legally smoke anywhere in Saskatchewan.
Anyone under 19 who is caught smoking or trying to buy weed can face fines or criminal charges.
Anyone selling to minors will face even more severe criminal offenses and could end up in jail.
If you are hoping to purchase some from a retail shop, be sure to have your ID on hand proving you are of legal age.
What are the laws for possession in the province?
How much can you purchase at one time
Just about every province in Canada has the same rules regarding possession and how much you can buy at one time.
Anytime you are in public you can have only 30 grams, which is about one ounce.
The same goes for purchasing marijuana – you won’t be able to buy more than this if you are getting it from a legal source.
How much weed does the Saskatchewan cannabis rules say you can store at home
Just because you can only purchase an ounce at a time, this doesn’t mean you can’t have more than this at home.
Within your residence you can have as much as you like.
So feel free to buy 30 grams a day as long as you properly store it at home!
Where can you legally purchase weed and where can you smoke it?
The only legal source for buying your weed according to Saskatchewan cannabis rules is through Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority or any retailers who have become licensed through SLGA.
There will be private retail shops but also the option to buy online.
If there are no shops near you, just hop on your computer, order your weed, and voila! It will be delivered right to your doorstep.
Are residents of the province allowed to grow their own plants?
Absolutely! Like most of the country, Saskatchewan residents can legally grow their own plants.
