Nova Scotia’s justice minister says the province will release its recreational marijuana plans – including minimum age and the retail model – by the end of this year.
Mark Furey says his department is analyzing the results of an online survey last month.
He says 31,000 people responded to the survey, which ran between Oct. 6 and Oct. 27.
It sought public opinion on issues including legal age, and where marijuana should be purchased and used.

With federal legislation legalizing weed as of July 1, Furey said accompanying provincial legislation would be tabled during the spring session of the legislature.
