As Canada cruises towards legalization, Nova Scotia’s cannabis laws are shaping up in some strange ways. Did you know Nova Scotians face the possibility of being banned from consuming (and even handling!) cannabis on their private property while you can freely blaze at the local golf course?
Some landlords ban practically everything except thinking about cannabis in Nova Scotia
A property management company in Nova Scotia sent the letter pictured below to residents of one of their buildings that details changes being made to their Lease Agreements in response to cannabis legalization which basically says no cannabis. At all.
According to the letter:
“No resident, occupant, guest or visitor is permitted to smoke, vape, grow, cultivate, sell, handle or distribute recreational cannabis anywhere on the property, including within private units.”
That means cannabis is banned in all indoor, private, public, common, and outdoor areas of the property.
Mind you, that’s only for recreational cannabis- there is no mention of medicinal cannabis anywhere in the letter. But you can bet that there are residents and cannabis activists already gearing up to fight these draconian restrictions.
