Nova Scotia's plan for legalized marijuana is out — and while it outlines where weed can be purchased, who can use it and how much you can possess, it remains unclear where you'll be able to smoke it.
Kevin Russell is wondering if legalization would have an impact on whether or not people smoke in apartment buildings and other shared living spaces.
He's the chair of the Investment Property Owners Association of Nova Scotia.
Russell says everyone should have the choice to live in a smoke-free building.
“There's 110,000 units here in Nova Scotia so there are a lot of people who are concerned,” said Russell. “We have people with respiratory diseases and children and families.”
Russell hopes landlords would have the right to decide if their buildings will be smoke-free or not.
