I believe the rules should be clarified and resolves the vagueness that is arising around the federal legalization of recreational weed, says Toronto’s Mayor John Tory.

This monopoly will be known as the Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation.
Lawyer General Yasir Naqvi propelled the OCRC — an auxiliary of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario — in clearing enactment Wednesday at Queen’s Park that produces results when Ottawa sanctions recreational weed next July 1.
“That is the legal name of that company. There will be branding that we’ll do … a visual logo, etc. that we will announce in the future,” said Naqvi, noting OCRC-run retail shops will offer bongs, moving papers, and other gear.
He also shares that it will be all likelihood called something new other than Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporations. The independent shops with initial 40 stores which will be open next summer that would likely hop to 150 territories wide estimated in 2020.
The OCRC will control every single online deal and government legislation forces measures to close down illicit or illegal dispensaries are working, incorporate terminations when charges have been laid. Palatable weed items won’t be sold until the national government starts taking control which could take years.
“It isn’t kind of Wild West Environment where people can just go out and set up any kind of shop they want. I don’t think anybody really supports that, perhaps, the people that operate the shops.” By Mayor John Tory.
Storefronts shop across Ontario has been raided by the Police when they reopen while their cases are still in the courts.
Here’s Naqvi statement regarding Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporations. “These pot stores that we see in our neighborhoods today are illegal. They will remain illegal.”
Public Smoking in Ontario is Banned
Those caught smoking in public places, workplaces, and motor vehicles will be punished. Now, many people will interpret this particular part of the bill as an attack on their right to smoke anywhere, but smoking in certain places isn’t a right.
This restriction was put in place simply to avoid high people doing stupid things around other people.
Toronto Mayor John Tory said: “Make no mistake, this is all about the rule of law,” as well as confirming to the press that he is very comfortable with the direction in which the Ontario government is going.
This law is also supposed put a restriction on landowners, in the sense that they won’t be able to rent their property knowingly to illegal cannabis growers.
Government Protecting the Youth with Age Limited Rule
Ontario is proposing to set the minimum age to purchase recreational cannabis at 19 years old, the same as alcohol and tobacco. This minimum age would also apply to possession, home cultivation, and use.
Protecting The safety in the workplace
As a key part of Ontario’s integrated awareness campaign and to help keep Ontario workplaces safe, the province will be developing resources to guide employers, labor groups and others as they manage workplace safety issues related to impairment at work through education and awareness initiatives.
