What is B.C.’s approach to cannabis legalization?
The Province of BC has made the following regulatory decisions. Adults 19+:
- May possess up to 30 grams of legal cannabis, dried or equivalent in non-dried form, in public.
- May share up to 30 grams of legal cannabis with other adults (giving or selling to youth is a criminal offense and there are several measures that help prevent youth from accessing cannabis within the Cannabis Act).
- May buy dried or fresh cannabis and cannabis oil from a provincially-licensed retailer.
- May make cannabis products, such as food and drinks, at home as long as organic solvents are not used to create concentrates.
The Original FARM is told Cannabis edible products and concentrates will be legal for sale approximately one year after the Cannabis Act came into force on October 17th, 2018.

Where can I consume cannabis now that its legalized?
B.C. will generally allow adults to use non-medical cannabis in public spaces where tobacco smoking and vaping are permitted (banned in areas frequented by youth, including community beaches, parks, and playgrounds). Use of cannabis in any form is illegal for all occupants while in vehicles, cannabis retail stores as well as cannabis lounges.
Now that cannabis is legalized can I travel with it?
Domestically, it is ok to fly with your legal cannabis, in dried or equivalent in non-dried form. Cannabis obtained through a government authorized source is legal throughout Canada.
Internationally, cannabis remains illegal to transport across the Canadian border. As a traveler, it’s your responsibility to be informed about the laws of the country you’re visiting (the legal status of cannabis use and possession laws).

No. No one under the age of 19 is allowed into The Original FARM. Cannabis products are not intended for nor marketed to children and all FARM customers must be 19 years or older. Anyone purchasing for minors will be banned from future visits across all FARM stores.
What are your ID requirements to shop in store?
FARM is responsible for ensuring that minors do not enter the store and are not sold non-medical cannabis or cannabis accessories. If there’s any doubt whether a patron is 19 or over, FARM and our Team Members must take reasonable steps to verify age by requesting two pieces of ID, examine both pieces carefully, and act on the authenticity of the identification. If FARM Team Members cannot demonstrate that we have done this, FARM could be held responsible for allowing a minor to enter our store and for selling cannabis or cannabis accessories to a minor. This is strictly prohibited in the terms and conditions of maintaining our cannabis retail license.
Everyone will be asked for 2 pieces of ID; one of which must be a government issued photo ID by the door greeter who uses a Patron Scan. This is to ensure you are 19+ as children are not allowed in the store.
Your personally identifiable information is automatically and permanently deleted from the Patron Scan database 24 hours after its initial collection. After this period your personally identifiable information will no longer exist anywhere in our data storage. Your personally identifiable information will not be used for marketing purposes and will not be sold to any third party.
The information collected with Patron Scan is uploaded to a central database managed by Servall Biometrics Inc., and it is logically and physically separated from any other Servall Biometrics Inc. applications the establishment may be running. Your private information is not stored locally with FARM, and cannot be accessed except as otherwise described in this statement.
