The production, sale and use of recreational cannabis was legalized on October 17, 2018 by the Federal Government under the Cannabis Control Act.

The governing legislation in Ontario is the Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation Act, Cannabis Control Act, Cannabis License Act (the Act), Smoke Free Ontario Act and others.

Effective April 1, 2019 retail cannabis stores will be permitted to operate if a municipality has chosen to "opt-in". Retail cannabis stores may only operate 150 metres from a school and in an area already zoned for commercial use.

Opting out does not prohibit legal consumption of cannabis, it only prohibits retails sales in the municipality.
