Where can you buy cannabis in New Brunswick?
Starting October 17, 2018 cannabis will be sold in 20 stores by Cannabis NB, a subsidiary of the New Brunswick Liquor Corporation (ANBL). Cannabis NB will also sell cannabis on its web site for online ordering.
To find the retail cannabis stores near you, use Leafly’s Store Finder. It’ll map nearby stores and connect you to each store’s updated menu.
What can you grow?
You can start raising your own cannabis strains at home (for personal use, not for profit):
- Limit of four plants per household from seeds bought from licensed cannabis retailers
- Plants must be hidden from public view, in a separate locked space
- Landlords may limit or ban growing
- Outdoor grows must be in a locked enclosure at least 1.52m in height
What’s the tax rate?
Canada’s federal government has proposed a cannabis excise tax across each province/territory of 10 per cent of the product price, or $1 per gram, whichever is higher. The federal government will hand over 75% of excise tax revenue to provinces for the first two years after legalization.
Sales tax rates of 5-15% may be applied by each individual province in addition to the federal excise tax. (Further details are forthcoming.)
What happens to medical cannabis?
Nothing. Canada’s medical cannabis system remains exactly as it was prior to October 17, 2018.
