Cannabis Social Clubs

Social use

Adults need safe legal spaces to consume cannabis. Cannabis Social Clubs are licensed premises that are restricted to members and have social and economic objectives. Social clubs could be onsite tasting rooms co-located where cannabis is sold, or BYO consumption lounges.


Social clubs would provide information, referrals to treatment if needed, monitoring and oversight of consumption, and would be subject to the same controls for products and location as retail stores. Some could provide communal growing facilities and distribute the crop among members.


Social clubs may be non-profit collectives or private enterprises with social objectives. Consumers could join existing social clubs or start their own. Social clubs may only provide cannabis to their members.

Duty of Care

Social clubs could be given a legal obligation to act in the best interests of their members.
