Eight provinces have set their minimum age to purchase at 19; Alberta and Quebec have made it 18. It's also looking like you can buy five different cannabis products, which include dry, fresh, oil cannabis, seeds and plants in most provinces.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that Quebec and Manitoba have said no to home-grows, so it's not really clear if you'll be able to buy seeds, or whatever else is needed to grow marijuana plants at home, says Trina Fraser, an Ottawa based lawyer at Brazeau Seller Law who specializes in cannabis business law.
