Western, Fanshawe take position against cannabis on campus

August 7, 2018

The London Free Press reports that Fanshawe College is banning marijuana from its campus and that Western University has adopted the same approach for its student residence buildings. “It’s not going to be allowed on campus unless there is a medical prescription, at which case it will have to be consumed in our smoking areas,” said Fanshawe College spokesperson Karrie Burke. A legal team at Western is reportedly working on a policy that will cover usage, plant growth, and other related topics. The Free Press writes that advocates and student groups are concerned that crackdowns will only lead to more problems for users. London Free Press
