A city committee thinks Edmontonians should be allowed to smoke cannabis in outside public places like parks and sidewalks — as part of the new bylaw governing cannabis use. On Wednesday, the city’s community and public services committee agreed to those rules, which are similar to current tobacco bylaws. People smoking cannabis outside would have to be 10 metres away from doors and open windows and 30 metres away from children’s amenities, like playgrounds. Smoking weed would also be banned on patios and at places like schools. Similar to tobacco and electronic cigarettes, you won’t be able to smoke legally in Churchill Square, Fort Edmonton Park or the zoo. The committee had other options available — they could have chosen stricter rules, similar to alcohol consumption — but chose the more relaxed regulations to support.
