Ontario Proposal Would Allow Cannabis in Hotel Rooms

Officials in the Canadian province of Ontario are proposing to allow cannabis consumption in hotel rooms, which industry experts predict to be beneficial for local tourism.

According to theOttawa Citizen, Matt Maurer, an Ontario-based lawyer, said that he knows people interested in opening cannabis-friendly hotels in the area. That, coupled with the fact that the province is proposing looser laws for public consumption and allowing comments on whether or not smoking lounges should be allowed, is poised to make for a strong public tourism market.

“I was surprised that it happened so quickly,” Maurer explained to Ottawa Citizen. “You could come to Ontario, go to the government-owned retail store, pick up your cannabis, head out to the hotel room, consume it there and head out to wherever you are going that evening, to a show or an event.”

These new provincial regulations, revealed just last month, would allow cannabis in public hotel rooms and inns as long as products are not smoked or vaped. Hotels could also allow for special designated smoking rooms where the smoking and vaping of cannabis would be allowed.

Canada Cannabis Legalexplains that this new provision would also allow for consumption of cannabis on boats as long as the boats have private quarters and are docked, and also takes a closer look at consumption of cannabis in the workplace and how medical cannabis can be transported.

This is not surprising at all, given the fact that cannabis stocks have beensoaring in Canada and the new industry is already poised to be huge and make major money for the nation. With exciting proposals like this in the works, it will be interesting to see the tourism industry that unfolds in the Great White North.
