While the use of recreational cannabis will become legal country-wide in under a month, the City of Quesnel is taking a harsher stance.
The city will not allow any public consumption within municipal boundaries, choosing instead to treat the substance in the same way as alcohol.
With the option to smoke in doors off the table, this effectively eliminates all smoking within the city.
On top of that, the city has opted to ban the private sale of marijuana within their municipality while they take a longer look at the vetting process.
The city will allow one government operated retail store in the city.
