A new proposed law calls for new penalties for people who drive under the influence of cannabis and restricts where it can be used. (Travis Golby/CBC) Legalized cannabis users would be largely prohibited from consuming pot anywhere but in their own homes if a new bill introduced by the Manitoba government is passed into law. The province announced Tuesday it plans to ban people from smoking cannabis in most public places, including parks and beaches. Medical marijuana activist Steven Stairs said he’s been smoking in public for the past decade and he manages to do it without offending people, so he doesn’t understand why the province feels the need to place stricter rules on pot consumption than tobacco or alcohol. “I just think this is going to criminalize people moreso. You’re going to have more penalties put on people for doing simple things like consuming in public,” he said. Toking allowed in homes but few other places under proposed Manitoba law
