The Saskatchewan government released a statement that it has amended its Cannabis Control Act to allow for ticketing of a number of cannabis related offences. 

The fines, which range from $200 to over $2000, pertain to both consumers and businesses. 

The smallest fine will apply to people convicted of possessing or distributing more than 30 grams of dried marijuana in a public place, or consuming it in a public place when prohibited. 

A $1000 fine can be applied to those smoking at a school, or at a child-care facility, and the biggest ticket, costing $2,250, will be issued to retailers who fail to check proof of age.  

The province says that the regulations are similar to those that monitor alcohol.
