The script for the movie called ‘Adventures in Cannibas’ is still being written, and the possibilities are almost endless, depending on where you live. The biggest unknown is ‘when’ it will finally be legal for Canadians to light up a recreational joint. The ‘where’ question is harder to answer.
In Manitoba, the civil service commission is trying to update its handbook that spells out the rules for the thousands who receive a public paycheque. For a long time now, alcohol has been allowed at Christmas parties and other office gatherings. What about marijuana? Right now the thinking is NO. After all, no one is allowed to smoke tobacco at public social events, so why should it be a surprize ?
What about shopping for party needs on your lunch break ? The draft handbook recommends that a civil servant be allowed to pick up a six pack or a bottle of wine at a nearby outlet, and store it safely in a bottom drawer until quitting time. But the same rulebook says “Possesion and/or storage of cannibas in the workplace is prohibited at all times, unless it has been prescribed”. Aye, there’s the rub. Maybe watch for new walk-in clinics
to pop up alongside shops selling marijuana.
Have we figured out when a driver might be ticketed for ‘driving high or whatever it will be called ?
Not really, but everyone from Justin on down is working on it.
Right, send us a tweet.
