In an effort to ensure secured, safe retail access to non-medical cannabis, NLC issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for Licensed Cannabis Retailers (LCRs) in Newfoundland & Labrador on February 2018 , with another RFP issued in May 2018 for specific regions. The proposals were focused on geographic areas (postal codes) throughout the province, with the qualified proponents moving to the next step of application. Most of these applicants have since received their licenses, while a few others continue to work on the requirements. Currently, over 70% of the population are within 50KM of their nearest retail store.
NLC will continue to monitor the retail environment during the initial stages of legalization. If more retail opportunities are warranted, NLC will be sure to advise the general public. Future opportunities will be posted on our website at https://hashandcannabis.com/
A: The Government of Canada has chosen to legalize cannabis to create a legal framework around production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis in Canada. More information about the federal framework can be found here:
A: The sale of cannabis is being conducted through private retailers licensed by the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC), which has the experience, resources and infrastructure to be regulator and distributor. NLC controls the possession, sale and delivery of cannabis, and sets prices for cannabis products.
NLC has established a secure online location at https://hashandcannabis.com/ for the purchase of cannabis products, providing accessibility for all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.
Programs have been developed for public awareness and education as well as specific training initiatives for retail operators and staff. NLC is working in partnership with government departments to deliver social responsibility communications via mass media, online and in Licensed Cannabis Retailers to ensure all matters pertaining to the legalization of cannabis are understood. A comprehensive, multifaceted public education and awareness program has been undertaken to ensure that residents, and particularly parents, youth, drivers, employers and employees understand the serious risks associated with cannabis use.
In the province of Newfoundland Labrador, plastic and glass cannabis containers can be placed in see-through blue bags along with other recyclable containers with curbside recycling, once the cap liner is removed. Cannabis pouches are made out of mixed materials and as such cannot be recycled so they should be placed in the garbage.

A: Police have been trained to detect impaired drivers through observation and tools such as field sobriety tests. Where police suspect a driver is impaired, they may have a driver undergo an examination by a police officer who has received special training as a Drug Recognition Evaluator.
The Federal Government is also developing roadside screening devices to detect cannabis in drivers and plans to set maximum permitted blood levels for THC (one of the main psychoactive ingredients in cannabis). New tools will be deployed by police in Newfoundland and Labrador as they become available.
A: The following amendments to the Highway Traffic Act further strengthen impaired driving legislation in the province:
– Zero tolerance for drugs for novice drivers, drivers under age 22 and commercial drivers;
– Seven day vehicle impoundment for the presence of drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol for novice drivers, drivers under age 22 and commercial drivers;
– Seven day vehicle impoundment for all drivers deemed impaired based on Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST)/approved testing device and/or Drug Recognition Expert (DRE);

A: Driving while impaired from cannabis is associated with an increased risk of motor vehicle accidents. The most effective way to avoid any risks of cannabis use is to abstain from use. The evidence-based Canadian Low Risk Use Cannabis Guidelines recommend not driving for at least six hours after using cannabis. As such, it is important to refrain from getting behind the wheel for at least this long or longer, as wait times can vary depending on the individual user, the properties of the specific cannabis product, and the method of consumption. Furthermore, using both cannabis and alcohol together multiplies impairment risks for driving and must be avoided altogether. Regardless of how you may feel, it is important to remember that impaired is impaired and it is illegal to operate or have care and control of a vehicle when impaired by drugs, alcohol, or a combination of drugs and alcohol.
A: Buying or selling cannabis outside of the licensed system is illegal. Severe fines and criminal penalties apply. Depending on the seriousness of the offence, you could:
