Programs are currently in development for public awareness and education as well as specific training initiatives for retail operators and staff. NLC will work 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 will be used to ensure that residents, and particularly parents, youth, drivers, employers and employees understand the serious risks associated with cannabis use.
We are committed to making every sale a responsible one. Preventing sales to anyone under the designated legal purchasing age of 19, and to intoxicated people, will remain a priority for the legal sale of non-medical cannabis.
