“Du cannabis vendu illégalement sur le web” by Charles D’Amboise, ici.radio-canada.ca.

Ici.Radio-Canada.ca quotes Québec City lawyer Jean-Raphaël Champagne in an article on the legality of selling cannabis on the web.

From a legal perspective, this kind of transaction remains totally illegal, remarked lawyer Jean-Raphaël Champagne, a regulatory law expert with Fasken Martineau.

“If this kind of transaction is not conducted pursuant to Health Canada regulations, it’s illegal, regardless of the purpose. All you are allowed to do right now is produce, distribute, and sell for medical purposes,” he explained.
