BC cannabis policies will vary by campus

September 14, 2018

Universities throughout British Columbia will take varying approaches to recreational cannabis use, from designated smoking areas to outright bans, reports the Vancouver Sun.  According to the Sun, the University of Victoria is expected to develop designated cannabis smoking areas for users aged 19 and over, while Langara College in Vancouver has prohibited any cannabis use on campus. UBC will release its new cannabis policy pending review by its Board of Governors, the Sun adds. Meanwhile, Simon Fraser University spokesperson Justin Wong told the Sun that the university is concerned about how cannabis use might create unsafe working conditions. Vancouver Sun(Times-Colonist)
