Visible intoxication is when a person’s physical and mental abilities are diminished by cannabis or other drugs to a point that it can be observed by others. You cannot sell cannabis items to a customer who is visibly intoxicated. You are not expected to know a customer’s impairment level or know for certain that a customer has consumed some other form of intoxicating substance, but you are expected to recognize visible intoxication. So you must not sell cannabis to anyone showing signs of visible intoxication no matter what substance the person may have used to become intoxicated. There are many signs of a visibly intoxicated person and if the person shows a combination of several of these signs, or exhibits a significant change in behavior, that could be a strong indication that the person is intoxicated.
