Sask. government won’t allow recreational cannabis and vaping lounges

List of places where people will be able to legally consume cannabis narrows even further.

The Saskatchewan government says it won’t allow recreational cannabis or vaping lounges to operate in the province, further restricting the number of places people will be allowed to smoke pot when it’s legalized on Oct. 17.

A spokesperson for the province’s Ministry of Justice confirmed the news on Monday morning, but added, “Vaping itself will not be prohibited. However, any form of public consumption of cannabis will be prohibited, including in lounges.”

The news came about a week after the government laid out a series of fines that could be charged to people caught smoking in numerous public spaces.

Saskatchewan’s omnibus cannabis legislation, Bill 121, which came into late law in May, says it will be illegal to consume cannabis in parks, playgrounds, cinemas, outdoor theatres or any “other place of public resort or amusement.”
