Saskatchewan Case Law, and
Cannabis Legislation in Saskatchewan – Effective When? (Update)
October 16, 2018
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.
