Quebec Sets Sights on Topicals Ban at SQDC Stores

Buried between the Quebec government’s $300M threat to edibles/beverages and its bizarre opposition to extracts (which will be capped at 30%, effectively banning vape pens and hashish in the province) was an all-out ban on topical cannabis products.

Health Minister Lionel Carmant concluded, “The topical creams are usually a medicinal use, so we don’t think they should be sold at the SQDC.”

While the rest of Carmant’s regressive new rules on cannabis were at least framed as protecting children from accidental consumption, the ban on topicals seems designed to protect Quebeckers from being able to buy potentially helpful medical products in the SQDC.
