The P-E-I and Nova Scotia governments say the legal age for cannabis use in each province will be 19.
However, the two Maritime provinces are taking different paths on where weed will be sold.
In P-E-I, it will be sold in dedicated government-owned retail stand-alone outlets, while Nova Scotia pot will be sold alongside alcohol in its provincial liquor stores.
Cannabis use will be restricted to private residences with a potential for expansion to designated public spaces at a later date.
Finance Minister Allen Roach held a news conference on Friday to outline the government’s strategy.
