Last month, Judge Manon Lavoie of the Supreme Court of Quebec repealed two sections of the provincial law that prohibited the cultivation of cannabis at home for personal use.

Prime Minister François Legault also said that the government was committed to fighting this decision. He said many building owners were concerned about possible damage to their property from cannabis growing settings.
