Smoking marijuana will be legal across Canada in just a few months, but depending on where you live there are still grey areas about where people will legally be able smoke it.
The Alberta government has unveiled its rules, with pot smoking prohibited in public places including schools, hospitals and various other spots where kids are usually present.
The City of Calgary is taking that one step farther by proposing an all-out ban on smoking pot in public.
Now, some in the marijuana industry are raising questions about the proposed bylaw.
“Let’s be realistic, people are going to smoke it just like they’re going to smoke cigarettes,” president of the Canadian Cannabis Association Linsday Blackett said.
“We have designated areas for people to smoke. You go to the Saddledome, you go to a game, there’s a designated smoking area. There should be a designated [marijuana] smoking area as well.”
