A Health Canada official told MJBiz that the agency does not expect to approve new regulations that would increase the possession limit for cannabis infused beverages until well after the summer months. A spokesperson for Health Canada said the rule change will not be completed before the fall of 2022. The proposed change would roughly increase the allowable limit for cannabis-infused beverages to 48 standard-size beverage cans, up from five.
