We are only days away from the Federal legalization of cannabis. In response to this legislative change, many condominium corporations have decided to implement rules to address smoking and growing of cannabis, as well as smoking of tobacco within the complex.

Unsurprisingly, opinions on the topic can vary significantly and are often strongly held. On the one hand, you have those who welcome a smoke-free environment and who wish not to be exposed to second-hand smoke or to the odour of tobacco or cannabis. On the other hand, you have occupants who consume tobacco or who look forward to legally consuming cannabis once it is legalized. In addition to this, you have individuals who may require to consume cannabis for medicinal purposes.
