Cannabis Consumption Guidelines in Saint-Laurent
In Canada, October 17th is a big day in the country's history. This will be the day that marijuana consumption will be legalized for recreational use. To get ready for the change in policy, there are several things that have to be done.
At its public meeting on October 2, Saint-Laurent Council issued a notice of motion to establish a regulatory framework that prohibits the use of cannabis in public places and parks on its territory.
This includes the places where you can actually smoke cannabis.
Here are a few places where you can't smoke:
- Sports fields and playgrounds
- Outdoor play areas that are intended for children
- Areas such as bus shelters and outdoor waiting areas that have to do with public transit.
Not only are these places prohibited, but also a nine-metre radius around these areas. The fines will range from $100-$2000 on the second offense or more.
Got all that?
This is what they are calling the Enforcement of Cannabis Regulation Act.
