Regions in Canada’s Northwest Territories include Dehcho, North Slave, Sahtu, South Slave, and Inuvik. The Canadian Arctic Archipelago’s islands, Arctic tundra, and woodland all make up their distant scenery. The South Nahanni River’s canyons and the 90-meter-tall Virginia Falls are the focal points of Dehcho’s Nahanni National Park Reserve. Yellowknife, the regional capital, is located on the Great Slave Lake’s northern shore.
THC levels in the blood must not exceed 2 nanograms per milliliter according to federal law. One billionth of a gram is called a nanogram. Concentrations between 2 and 5 nonograms carry a $1,000 maximum penalties. Concentrations of 5 nanograms or more are punishable by a $1,000 minimum fine for the first offense, 30 days or more in jail for the second offense, and 120 days or more in jail for the third. If a deadly accident results from drugged driving, the punishment can be anywhere from 18 months to life in prison.
Where to Get Cannabis in the Northern Territories
Although it was recommended by the federal government that cannabis be sold in standalone establishments, there were certain exceptions made for rural areas. The decision to co-locate in liquor stores was made by the Northwest Territories government since the establishments already had the retail infrastructure necessary to handle cannabis sales.
Currently, Yellowknife, Hay River, Fort Simpson, Fort Smith, Inuvik, and Norman Wells all have liquor stores. If a parent or other responsible adult is present, minors are permitted in stores. The territory intends to permit the opening of private cannabis retail businesses, but has not yet established the requirements for those enterprises.
