After backtracking on an earlier exception that allowed medical cannabis users to smoke or vape where e-cigarette smoking was prohibited, the Ontario government is planing to now ban cannabis along with vaping in public spaces.

The original regulations looked to provide restrictions on e-cigarettes but allowed exemptions for medical cannabis users, the day after the plans were announced public outcry caused officials to rescind the rules and return to planning.

“We have made a determination that smoking, whatever it is – whether it’s vaping, whether it’s medical marijuana, whether it’s cigarettes – that there should be restrictions on that,” said Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. “And so the rules will apply to marijuana, to medical marijuana, to vaping as they do to cigarettes.”
