Cannabis legalization in Yukon: Have your say

The federal government is making cannabis (marijuana) legal in Canada in July 2018. It’s now up to Yukon to make local decisions about a number of issues, including how and where it will be sold, where it can be consumed, and how to address impaired driving and workplace safety.

As the Government of Yukon considers its options related to legal cannabis, its decisions will be guided by the following principles:  

  • Provide for legal, controlled access to cannabis that displaces illegal and criminal activity. 
  • Prioritize public health, safety and harm reduction, with a focus on protecting youth from negative health effects.

Yukoners are invited to learn more about cannabis and to share their input, which will inform how Yukon adapts to legalization.

Take the survey between August 10 and September 30, 2017.

Results of the survey will be posted to this site by November 15, 2017
