In Montréal, the following rules apply:
- Smoking or vaping cannabis is not permitted in any indoor public place such as concert halls and libraries, or outdoor places such as parks, the streets or sidewalks.
- The minimum legal age for possessing or buying cannabis, or entering the Société québécoise du cannabis stores, is 21.
Cannabis use falls under federal and provincial jurisdiction.
