Cannabis edibles not being regulated in Alberta Town

Cannabis edibles not being regulated in Bonnyville

Cannabis edibles, extracts, and topicals won’t be governed the same way as smoking marijuana in the Town of Bonnyville.

Council defeated a motion to create a bylaw that would prohibit cannabis-infused products in public spaces, similarly to the consumption rules for smoking.

The topic was up for discussion after administration received a note from Alberta Health Services (AHS) in January recommending municipalities prohibit public consumption entirely due to safety concerns.

“Our bylaw currently restricts all forms of smoking, and that applies to both smoking and cannabis due to concerns about second-hand smoke,” assistant CAO Bill Rogers said during council’s regular meeting on Feb. 11. “But, it doesn’t deal with edibles, topicals, or extracts.”
