A much-anticipated policy on cannabis and the Human Rights Code has been released by the Ontario Human Rights Commission. The focus on the legalization of recreational cannabis has left a lot of Canadians with questions relating to the laws governing the use of medical marijuana.
One of the main concerns is about the use of cannabis in the workplace.
People who use cannabis for a medical purpose or have an addiction have rights under the Human Rights code but given the changes to the legal landscape they felt it was important to put out some clear guidance.
When it comes to cannabis and housing, rules for smoking and vaping mirror the tobacco use rules.
It is clear that going forward there are going to be a lot of issues and discussion around rights of cannabis users and the rights of those who detest or are allergic to it. This is unchartered territory. -CINEWS
