Marijuana users in Saskatoon will have to follow the same rules as cigarette smokers after legalization.
At their regular monthly meeting on Monday, councillors voted unanimously to add marijuana to its current smoking bylaw. As a result, marijuana smoking or vaping won’t be allowed in restaurants, bars, parks or city-operated facilities like SaskTel Centre.
Other marijuana-related issues, like zoning for newly legalized pot stores, will be dealt with after public consultations.
“We’re not moving any of the requirements or regulations on zoning or location, anything like that,” said councillor Darren Hill. “Administration is taking that back out to the public for feedback.”
Councillors also had questions about whether marijuana would be allowed to be smoked on the sidewalk.
