“It would be foolish for licensed producers to sit there and not partake in this system of selling to provinces. They could certainly delay it, and kick the can further down the line, but they’re not going to be able to avoid getting out of this issue.”

The federal government is issuing “nursery licences” to small-scale producers who want to sell seeds or live plants. They can source their seeds from the bigger licenced producers or from abroad from countries like Jamaica or Uruguay (which Anand calls “not a terribly complex process”). They’re also allowed to buy seeds from grey-market producers, on a one-off basis — they have to declare them once when the licence is applied for, and not ever buy any more after that.

Should there be a one-metre height limit on plants? That was rejected as impractical. Should provinces be allowed to ban home grows? (Ottawa said no; Manitoba and Quebec disagree; a judge will probably have to settle the issue sooner or later.)
