What policies are currently in place in schools?

The law sets a minimum age of 19 to use, buy, possess and cultivate cannabis in Ontario. This is the same as the minimum age for tobacco and alcohol sales. Even though recreational cannabis is legal for adults 19 years of age and older, it is still prohibited in schools, on school property, and at school-related activities.

Refer to your school (or school board’s) policy for further information specific to your own school’s protocols.
