At Home:
The new regulations remove personal storage limits for patients. Like any adult Canadian, patients can store as much cannabis as they want at home.

In Public:
If you are a registered medical cannabis patient, you are permitted to possess the lesser of 150 grams or a 30-day supply of dried cannabis (or the equivalent in cannabis product). If a patient ALSO chooses to purchase recreational cannabis, that patient is permitted to carry an additional 30 grams allowed for non-medical purposes. Those authorized to access cannabis for medical purposes must be prepared to show they are legally allowed to possess more than 30 grams (or equivalent) in public, if requested by law enforcement.
 

While the rules set out in the Cannabis Act are applicable to every province and territory in Canada, your province may have additional rules about how cannabis can be bought/sold and where it can be consumed. To learn more about the rules of your jurisdiction, click here.
