Both those provinces outlined their plans ahead of the Jul. 1 legalization date and it looks like we may be following suit as the province will be announcing initial decisions about cannabis legalization on Thursday.

Officials also announced that the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis within the province will be 19.

The province of Nova Scotia announced today, December 7, that when recreational cannabis becomes legal in July 2018, it will be sold online and in some existing Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) stores.

"The NSLC has the experience and expertise to distribute and sell restricted products like alcohol and now cannabis in a socially responsible way", said Justice Minister Mark Furey.

Furey did not confirm how many NSLC stores will carry cannabis, but did say people will have the option of ordering cannabis online.

Other cannabis guidelines announced by the government include a personal possession limit of up to 30 grams and a personal cultivation limit of up to four plants per household.

The government said its plans are being informed by an online survey completed 31,000 times in October.
