Public Consultations on Recreational Marijuana Sales in New Brunswick

WANT TO BE ABLE TO KEEP BUYING YOUR MEDICATION IN A CANNABIS DISPENSARY?

LET THE GOVERNMENT OF NEW BRUNSWICK KNOW.

HERE’S HOW….

 

The Government of New Brunswick is currently doing public consultations on the future of recreational marijuana sales. We want to make sure that the Government doesn’t forget about the unique and important needs of medical marijuana patients in the new system.

We want the new system to allow for legal, regulated dispensaries and we need you to make your voice heard if you want to be able to continue to purchase your medication at a dispensary. We don’t want government to take that choice away from you.

There are three ways you can participate:

  1. Share your thoughts with the committee by submitting a letter to Office of the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly by July 31. Submissions can be sent by email to leg-consultations@gnb.ca, and by mail: Office of the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, P.O. Box 6000, Fredericton, N.B., E3B 5H1. You can also submit online here: gnb.ca/legis/Promos/Public_Hearings/Cannabis/index-e.aspDeadline for submissions is July 31st.
