AGLC is taking the COVID-19 coronavirus matter seriously. Please visit for the latest updates.

Cannabis consumption

Albertans are allowed to consume cannabis in single-family homes and locations where their municipality allows. Renters, condo-dwellers and those who live in multi-family dwellings might be restricted from using cannabis in their homes based on rules established in rental agreements or condominium bylaws. 

Use is banned in cars and motor vehicles, with the exception of those being used as a temporary residence (such as a parked RV).

Rules for consumption vary across municipalities, so it's up to users to know the rules of the municipality they're in.

Public smoking or vaping of cannabis in Alberta is prohibited in any place where tobacco is restricted, as well as other locations where children might be present, including hospital or school property.

Cannabis consumption is also prohibited at any cannabis retail outlet.
