Initiatives & Programs
There are many resources available with Socially Responsible content, Federal and Provincial Legislation, usage guidelines. Cannabis use for non-medical purposes is governed by federal and provincial legislation.
All Licensed Cannabis Retailers (LCR) are responsible for knowing and following the rules set out in the Cannabis Control Act and the Smoke Free Environment Act 2005, as well as the specific terms and conditions of their license. NLC's Regulatory Services department is responsible for taking enforcement action if an LCR does not comply with the law.
NLC works closely with law enforcement partners Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), as well as non-governmental organizations, to raise awareness of the dangers of drug-impaired driving. We are committed to supporting their efforts through roadside checks during long weekends and holidays and creating awareness of zero tolerance for impaired driving.
