Joint ven­tures

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

Cana­dian uni­ver­si­ties are re­spond­ing in dif­fer­ing ways to the na­tion­wide le­gal­i­sa­tion of cannabis. For most in­sti­tu­tions across the coun­try, the change, which took ef­fect on 17 Oc­to­ber, is ex­pected to have rel­a­tively lit­tle ef­fect: recre­ational cannabis use on cam­pus will re­main banned. But a few uni­ver­si­ties, mostly in the coun­try’s west, where lo­cal reg­u­la­tions are gen­er­ally more per­mis­sive, are tak­ing an ap­proach built on ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness, not pro­hi­bi­tion. The Univer­sity of Al­berta, along with the Univer­sity of Bri­tish Columbia in Van­cou­ver, plans to treat mar­i­juana much like to­bacco: it will per­mit smok­ing in lim­ited ar­eas.
