Ontario landlords call for right to immediately ban pot in units

  Ontario landlords call for right to immediately ban pot in units TORONTO - Ontario landlords want the right to immediately ban the use of pot in rental properties when recreational weed is legalized this summer, arguing they should be allowed to change tenants' existing leases to stop the drug from being consumed in their units. Some marijuana users say, however, that the situation would leave renters with few places to legally use weed, given the province's already restrictive rules around the drug.

Eight provinces have set their minimum age to purchase at 19; Alberta and Quebec have made it 18. It's also looking like you can buy five different cannabis products, which include dry, fresh, oil cannabis, seeds and plants in most provinces.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that Quebec and Manitoba have said no to home-grows, so it's not really clear if you'll be able to buy seeds, or whatever else is needed to grow marijuana plants at home, says Trina Fraser, an Ottawa based lawyer at Brazeau Seller Law who specializes in cannabis business law.

Also across each province, you'll be able to buy weed through private storefronts, provincially-operated entities, or a mix of both. Also, most provinces and territories have said yes to online sales, except for the Northwest Territories.

Based on frameworks, proposed laws and guidelines released by the provinces, marijuana will mostly be distributed through liquor boards or subsidiaries of liquor boards, like the Cannabis Management Corp. in New Brunswick.

In terms of what Canadians can expect to pay, it's looking like it will be roughly $10 a gram. In December, finance ministers agreed they wanted to set a price that would deter people from buying pot from the black market.
