The legislature’s select committee on cannabis, made up of government members and opposition members, has released its final report.
Public consultations were held across the province in July, and then the committee began compiling the report called Consulting New Brunswickers: The Legalization of Recreational Cannabis in New Brunswick.
More than 70 presenters appeared before the committee during the consultations, that were held seven communities including Moncton and Saint John.
The select committee found they have varying viewpoints on the proposed model for a legal industry of pot, but they did agree on several things. That included keeping marihuana out of the hands of youth, shutting out organized crime, making an investment in education, addressing health concerns an ensuring public safety.
