Students at the University of Alberta won’t be able to light up legal cannabis wherever they choose.
After the drug becomes legal on Oct. 17, cannabis smoking will be restricted to specific locations on campus — and residence buildings won’t be among them, according to recommendations in the final report from a cannabis working group.
The report, which includes 19 separate recommendations, has been approved by administration.
- Edmonton council restricts tobacco smoking after passing cannabis bylaw
- City approves 9 pot shop permits of 180 applications — so far
It followed eight months of consultation, town halls, surveys and research.
Here are a few highlights from the recommendations:
- Smoking and vaping of cannabis will be allowed on campus but restricted to locations which haven’t yet been determined.
- Growing, smoking, vaping and cooking cannabis won’t be allowed in residence buildings.
- Cannabis consumption won’t be allowed at university events for a year.
- Sales, advertising, branding, and sponsorship of cannabis
