As of January 31, 2023, British Columbia will become the first jurisdiction in North America to decriminalize hard drugs. People 18 years and older will be able to carry up to 2.5 grams of fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine without arrest, seizure or any other consequence.

B.C. has been under a public health emergency since 2016. Since then, nearly 10,000 people have died from drug overdose. Federal Minister of Mental Health and Addictions Carolyn Bennett calls this "a template for other jurisdictions across Canada".
