Province Looking for Feedback Ahead of Marijuana Legalization

The provincial government has set up an online survey to gather public input as it works to develop its approach to marijuana legalization.

Ontario's attorney general Yasir Naqvi says legalization of pot next July by the federal government will mark a big change in the country.

"Here in Ontario, we have some important decisions to make - and with so much at stake, we need to get it right. That's why we need to hear from the people of Ontario as we develop an approach to legalization that keeps our youth, communities and roads safe."

The province wants input from Ontarians on how it should proceed in a way that protects youth, prevents harm and keeps Ontario roads safe.

The province will also be holding a series of expert forums and public sessions this summer on the potential impact of cannabis legalization.
