Prince Edward Island Possession, Purchasing, and Consumption Rules
If you are 19 years old or older, you can purchase and possess up to 30 grams of cannabis at a time. You can also grow up to four plants at home.
Purchasing cannabis in store: If you want to purchase cannabis in person, you have four storefront options: the O’Leary, Summerside, Charlottetown, or Montague location. If you are legally aged, you can purchase flower, edibles, and concentrates from these stores.

Consumption laws: You can consume cannabis in a private residence only. Driving while high is illegal.
Licensing Rules for Retailers
Prince Edward Island Cannabis Management Corporation (PEICMC) regulates cannabis in cooperation with the PEI Liquor Control Commission (PEILCC).
