Ward 11 News: Proposed Public Consumption of Cannabis

  • Share

Ward 11 official website
Cannabis will be legal on October 17th. In Calgary, public consumption rules will be similar to those of alcohol. It will be illegal to consume recreational cannabis (smoking, vaping or edibles) in any form in public places except in designated consumption areas.
 
Landlords, condo bylaws and hotels can prohibit cannabis consumption so the City is considering using some public parks and green spaces be designated for cannabis consumption.
 
There are four proposed cannabis consumption areas and all are located in Ward 9 (Councillors were asked to volunteer their wards). The four suggested consumption areas are in Bridgeland, Inglewood (two locations) and Ogden. You can provide your feedback until September 7th through this site: https://engage.calgary.ca/cannabisareas
 
You can also provide your feedback in person at the October Public Hearing at City Hall or at each one of the proposed consumption sites. Large displays with details of the project have been installed at each one of the proposed locations along with feedback forms that can be filled out and submitted on site. The one exception to this is in Inglewood, where the large display will be located at the 11 Avenue SE location this week (August 27-September 1) and the Wildlands parking lot location next week (September 1-7).
