NS pot plans

Justice minister Diana Whalen is waiting on the federal government to table its marijuana legalization law before making any decisions at the provincial level, while the province’s finance minister is staying tight-lipped about how, or even if, pot will be taxed.

She added that Nova Scotia legislators are still “grappling” with some of the “big questions” raised by the legalization of marijuana, such as to handle people who have used marijuana and are driving.

In terms of where it will be sold, Whalen said options include through the NSLC or independent retail locations.
