KAMLOOPS — Time is running out to have your say on the future of pot regulation in British Columbia.

The provincial government is offering the public a chance to have its voice heard on issues such as minimum age, personal possession limits, consumption in public, drug-impaired driving, personal cultivation, and distribution and retail models.

The deadline is 4 p.m. on Nov. 1. You can access the consultation website by clicking here.

"B.C.'s goal is to build a provincial regulatory framework for non-medical cannabis that prioritizes the protection of young people, health and safety, locking criminals out of the industry, and keeping roads safe," says the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. 

Since the public engagement period opened on Sept. 25, more than 300,000 British Columbians have completed the survey and shared their feedback.

The federal government has imposed a July 2018 deadline to legalize pot across the country.
