Cannabis, a hot potato

There’s been a lot of inconclusive media muttering about the impending legalization of cannabis – specifically, how to squelch its usage once it becomes legal. Many landlords don’t want people smoking it in their apartments, and the city opposition proposed a law banning it in public places, which has just been voted down.

The city wants to take a third of any cannabis tax, which Philippe Couillard says it will; the city also says it may approve cannabis use at the tam-tams, kind of amusing since it’s been tolerating that anyway for years, and it wants to be able to choose which festivals will accept the open consumption of the stuff.
