Offences that will be ticketed include:
- A $200 ticket for possessing or distributing more than 30 grams of dried cannabis in a public place
- A $200 ticket for consuming cannabis in a public place
- A $1,000 ticket for consuming cannabis at school, on school grounds or at a child care facility
- A $300 ticket if a minor is caught purchasing, possessing, consuming or selling cannabis
- A $750 ticket for anyone caught selling or giving cannabis to a minor
- A $2,250 ticket if a permittee or employee of a retail cannabis location fails to demand proof of age and/or if a permittee sells or distributes cannabis to a minor
- A $300 ticket for possessing, consuming or distributing cannabis in a vehicle, which will not apply if someone is transporting cannabis from a legal point of purchase to a legal point of consumption
- A $200 ticket for possessing or consuming cannabis in a campground when a cannabis prohibition is in effect
