OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada will weigh the constitutionality of a Quebec law that forbids the growing of cannabis for personal use.

Four years ago the federal government legalized recreational cannabis, allowing people to grow up to four cannabis plants per residence for their own use.

However, Quebec’s Cannabis Regulation Act prohibited possession of cannabis plants and cultivation for personal purposes in the province.

Janick Murray-Hall successfully challenged the Quebec law, which was declared unconstitutional in 2019 by the province’s Superior Court on the basis it strayed into federal jurisdiction.
