25. Only the Société québécoise du cannabis and a cannabis producer may purchase cannabis from a producer and sell cannabis. However, a producer may sell cannabis only to the Société or to another producer, unless the producer ships it outside Québec.
The Government may, by regulation, prescribe the conditions applicable to the sale of cannabis between producers and the standards they must comply with. It may also determine the provisions of such a regulation whose violation constitutes an offence and prescribe, for each offence, the fines to which an offender is liable, which may not exceed $100,000.
Anyone who contravenes the first paragraph commits an offence and is liable to a fine of $5,000 to $500,000.
The amounts of the fines set out in the second and third paragraphs are doubled for a subsequent offence.
