Newfoundland opens survey on marijuana legislation

The provincial government is seeking public input on new marijuana legislation set to come into effect in little over a year.

Justice Minister Andrew Parsons says government has launched a website to allow people to have their say on what they’d like to see.

He says questions include age restrictions, where it should be sold, and what other restrictions are necessary once the use of marijuana is legalized.

What Parsons calls “targeted stakeholders” will be separately surveyed.

They will include the medical community and business interests. He uses the age restrictions as an example, whereby they weigh what the public thinks is a good age, against medical evidence.

The online survey, which will be open until June 30.
