  • On 19 June 2018, the Senate passed Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act. On 21 June 2018, the Bill received Royal Assent, thereby legalizing marijuana for recreational use in Canada. 

           In response, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) issued the attached Statement on the Legalization of Cannabis/Marijuana for Recreational Use.

           This statement comments on what the CCCB worries will be the effects of using and promoting the use of marijuana for recreational purposes, reiterating the information and insights already expressed in its priorStatement on Canada’s Opioid Crisis and Drug Addiction”, as well as highlighting the important evidence-based concerns raised by a number of community professionals and the Holy See.

           You are invited to bring this statement to the attention of the Catholic faithful, politicians, educators, and general public in your parish and in your family.
