The province announced new rules to govern where you can use cannabis once its legal.
“Our government is committed to protecting the public health and safety of Manitobans as we address the federal government’s decision to legalize recreational cannabis,” said Justice Minister Heather Stefanson. “Manitobans of all ages deserve to be protected from people impaired by cannabis.”
The bill will prohibit smoking and vaping cannabis in outdoor public places including:
- streets and sidewalks
- parks and beaches
- school grounds
- restaurant patios and decks
- the grounds of health-care facilities
In summary, you won’t be able to use it in almost all outdoor public places.
A new bill will also introduce fines for drivers who fail oral fluid drug screening devices to ensure no one gets behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming cannabis.
