The upcoming legalization of marijuana is top of mind for law enforcement personnel and municipal officials these days.
Tuesday night, Quinte West council unanimously supported a motion from councillor Sally Freeman that law enforcement agencies and municipalities be given a six month grace period after legalization to get ready to properly enforce new regulations surrounding marijuana use.
The resolution will be forwarded to MPs, MPPs, and other municipalities in hopes they’ll support the six month grace period.
The Chair of the Quinte West Police Services Board, Deputy Mayor Jim Alyea says enforcement of new marijuana regulations will be
the main topic of discussion at a fast approaching conference involving police services and police service boards.
