Ontario Cannabis Store won’t require proof of age before placing order online

To buy weed online in Alberta next week, you’ll need to set up an account and submit to an age-verification process that includes uploading a driver’s licence or a verification check with credit rating agency Equifax.

In Ontario, no proof will be required.

The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) will verify the age of customers by forcing people to say that they’re 19 years old three different times, but nobody will need to give actual evidence of their age until a Canada Post mailman shows up at your door and asks you to sign for the package.

If the recipient looks as though they’re younger than 25 years old, Canada Post will ask to see proof that they’re over 19.
