October 24, 2018

With Canada becoming the second country worldwide to make cannabis legal at the national level, institutions have taken “drastically different approaches” to their cannabis policies. In a collaboration story by UBC's the Ubyssey, Carleton University's the Chalatan, the University of Calgary's the Gauntlet, and the University of Ottawa's the Fulcrum explore the policies and stances taken by different institutions. The article highlights the complexities of policies for areas such as housing and residences and note that most institutions have completely banned the use of cannabis on campus for a variety of reasons. McGill University's interim guidelines are reportedly among the most restrictive in Canada, while at UBC students will be permitted to smoke cannabis anywhere that they can smoke cigarettes. The Gauntlet
