The new year has brought with it some stricter age requirement for cannabis consumers throughout Quebec.

The Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ) government has adopted a new law on cannabis consumption that raises the legal age from 18 to 21.

The new age requirement makes Quebec the strictest province in the country. Elsewhere in Canada, cannabis is permitted at age 19, except in Alberta, where the legal age is 18.

The new law has also banned the sale of cannabis snacks including candies, desserts, gummies, and chocolate.
