Effective Friday, October 13th, 2023:
AGLC has amended its policy interpretation regarding reasonable age-verification steps for online retail cannabis sales.
Retailers can now use self-attestation as a sufficient age-gating procedure for their websites and social media content.
This means that you no longer have to use Hard Age Gate to age-verify customers!
AGLC inspectors will continue to review online platforms to ensure compliance with all federal and provincial regulations. Kindly make sure your website and age-verification procedures align with the new policies.
