Universities in Canada may become the First to legalize Pot Smoking

NOIDA- For most ambitious young minds, college is about uncovering your place in the world and receiving the required education to transform into a possible part of the society. Nevertheless, achieving this destination requires strong belief, enormous concentration, and, depending on the extra-curricular involvement of the students and the habituation to intoxicating substances.

The University of British Columbia in Canada could be the first university in the world to permit pot smoking on campus and might set up devoted places for that utility. Nevertheless, Canada will open its marketplace for recreational Cannabis soon. All is to let the college students smoke weeds close to the university campus.

Following the legitimization of the ownership and selling of recreational cannabis in Canada last month, the University’s Administrative unit has put forward a draft plan of action titled Smoking and Smoking Product Promotion on Campus. The draft Directive has been submitted for consultation with the Community and a final call for this is expected in February. In UBC residence, the fostering, smoking, and piping of cannabis continue to be prohibited. Cannabis stocked in homes must be distinctly tagged and must not affect other occupants, according to the draft. The university also plans to introduce non-smoking regions on campus.

Universities in other parts of Canada follow related norms. Queen’s University in Kingston also forbids students and employees from smoking marijuana inside the campus, but executives say they are likely to permit intake of nontoxic pot products in some places. The legitimization of possession of cannabis leads to many questions.

The official draft amendment says, “Certain smoking areas would be indicated by signs or markings that will help students to identify the limits of smoking areas for information and social control purposes. Smoking of few listed products may be allowed within identified smoking areas and publicized signage or markings will also denote if any limitations exist for some types of products.
