The Saskatchewan government on Wednesday unveiled its fine structure around the sale and use of recreational marijuana, which will soon be legal.  “These new regulations that apply to cannabis are similar to current rules regarding alcohol,” the government said in a news release. The fines will range from $200 to $2,250. The government says the fines will not kick in until the provincial act comes into effect this fall. Until then, the recreational use of cannabis remains illegal. Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority said it’s beefing up staff on the enforcement side to deal with legalized pot. New positions include a branch director, manager, four cannabis inspectors, four licensing specialists, a policy analyst, a financial analyst and part-time administrative support.
