Cannabis home grow is prohibited in Manitoba, Canada

What can you grow?

Home-grow and personal cultivation is currently prohibited in the province of Manitoba.

What’s the tax rate?

Canada’s federal government has proposed a cannabis excise tax across each province/territory of 10 per cent of the product price, or $1 per gram, whichever is higher. The federal government will hand over 75% of excise tax revenue to provinces for the first two years after legalization.

Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries will apply markups of $0.75 per gram on recreational cannabis, plus 9%. Retailers will also pay an additional 6% of their revenues to go toward a “responsibility fee” to help pay for the cost of public education, safety, health, and addictions associated with the legalization of cannabis.

What happens to medical cannabis?

Nothing. Canada’s medical cannabis system remains exactly as it was prior to October 17, 2018.
