As first disclosed by the Star, Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government is banning the use of cannabis in all enclosed public places, workplaces and most outdoor areas.
“We have made a determination that smoking — whatever it is, whether it’s vaping, whether it’s medical marijuana, whether it’s cigarettes — there should be restrictions on that,” Wynne said at Eglinton Crosstown line on Thursday.
Russell Barth, a medical marijuana user in Ottawa, warned that many patients will not abide by the ban, because it contravenes provincial and federal human-rights legislation.
Would you consider the ban for medical marijuana a human rights issue? Do you agree or disagree with the liberals decision to ban it in public areas?
