The legal age for possession and consumption in Canada is 18 but individual provinces have the authority to provide additioanl restrictions on the provincial age of consumption. In Saskatchewan the legal age of cannabis possession and consumption is 19 years of age, the same as for alcohol.
Anyone under the legal age, within the province of Saskatchewan, is prohibited to be in possession of more than 5 grams - it is a criminal offence and subject to the Youth Criminal Justice Act processes and penalties
Zero Tolerance for Drugs and Driving
Saskatchewan has taken a zero tolerance approach to drugs and driving for drivers of all ages. It can be transported from a place where it can legally be purchased to a place where it can legally be consumed or from one location of legal consumption to another but consumption of cannabis by a driver or passenger in a vehicle is prohibited, similar to legislation for alchol.
Never drive while impaired and don't get into a vehicle where you know a driver has been using drugs. Plan a safe ride ahead of time. Friends should never let impaired friends drive.

Businesses that hold a retail cannabis permit from Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority [SLGA] can legally sell cannabis. Cannabis can only be sold through online and private stores regulated by the SLGA. It is only legal to purchase cannabis from a licensed retailer. Selling or buying illicit cannabis is still illegal.
