Cannabis legalization in Canada
Canadian legislation prohibits driving while impaired by alcohol, cannabis or a combination of both. Impaired driving is a serious crime that can threaten both your and your loved ones’ safety and that of others on the road. CAA has compiled information you need to know about cannabis and impaired driving in Canada.
Every year, there are tens of thousands of impaired driving incidents in Canada, including several thousand drug-impaired driving incidents. Learn more about what constitutes impaired-driving and the penalties that come with it through the Department of Justice’s portal on impaired driving.
