Nova Scotia is expected to provide an update on its plans for legalizing marijuana Thursday morning.

This comes two days after Manitoba and BC laid out their plans for legalization.

Both those provinces outlined their plans ahead of the Jul. 1 legalization date and it looks like we may be following suit as the province will be announcing initial decisions about cannabis legalization on Thursday.

In addition, it will be releasing the results from online consultations that were launched in October, which will reveal which way Nova Scotians are leaning in terms of legal age to purchase, where it can be purchased and where it can be used.

Justice minister mark furey said 31,000 responded to the survey.

In September, the province's Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Robert Strang suggested the legal age for use should be 21 years old.
