As of this month, recreational cannabis is legal in Canada. This is exciting news for a number of reasons, not the least of which being you can now buy weed whenever you want. One of the big questions on everyone’s mind is: where can you smoke in Canada? Can you light up on a sidewalk, or in a public park, or in your own backyard?
First of all, you should know just how much cannabis you can get away with carrying around. In Canada that happens to be 30 grams, which I don’t need to tell you is a lot. Can one person even physically carry around that much flower?
Now, where can you smoke all that flower? Well, if you happen to be in Ontario, you can smoke it pretty much anywhere you want. Yes, it’s true. Unlike cannabis laws in the U.S which ban public consumption of cannabis, you can light up anytime, anywhere. You can light up in a park, while out picking up some groceries, or taking the dog for a walk. Of course, you should still be cognizant of where you’re choosing to light up, and keep in mind that there are still some restrictions, such as indoor common areas, schools or anywhere kids happen to be. You also cannot smoke in hospitals, or any other enclosed public space. You can smoke in designated hotel rooms, personal vehicles, and boats.
In Alberta, it’s the same story, except if you happen to be in Calgary, where recreational cannabis use is banned except for in designated areas. Make sure to study the rules for public consumption in each area if you’re traveling from province to province, because they’re different in most cases.
As far as a private residence goes, you can smoke anywhere you want. If you’re in someone else’s house, always ask permission before you light up or vape. Just because you can legally smoke anywhere you want, doesn’t mean you should.
