RECAP ON SOON-TO-BE-LEGAL CANNABIS CONSUMPTION IN CANADIAN PROVINCES
British Colombia, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Alberta will allow adults of legal age to consume cannabis in public in some approved form.
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario have already decided to ban public consumption.
In Newfoundland, Labrador and New Brunswick, legislators ruled cannabis use is only permitted in private residences. During special events, however, consumption may be permitted with approval from the property owners.
Make sure you know the rules before you light up!
