It can come as no surprise that regional governments are tackling the issue of legalization with drastically different plans. Those differences were rather the point; the federal bill mandates cannabis legalization only so far.
The framework allows local governments to decide on many aspects of legalization after considering their citizens’ desires. After all, each province and territory has vastly different needs, views, and cultures. What’s good for Saskatchewan isn’t necessarily right for Newfoundland & Labrador. What we achieve in BC is vastly different, I hope, to what Ontario is getting.
