Matt Maurer speaks to Global News about home grown bans since legalization

One of the most contentious arguments before cannabis was legalized last year was whether provinces could ban home grows.

In the end, Quebec and Manitoba chose to completely forbid residents from growing their own marijuana.

Because a fine of a few hundred dollars isn’t life-changing, it may be hard to motivate a person to spend years in court to avoid it, says cannabis lawyer Matt Maurer. In all likelihood, they’ll pay the fine and get on with life.

“There are people and organizations that I’m sure would fund that,” Maurer says. “There are people who have said they’d fund challenges to the driving law, there are organizations that would fund the home grow.”
