Valley Journal Advertiser - - COVER STORY ON THE STREET: LEGALIZATION -

Ja­son Hanes, head coach of the Wind­sor Knights in­ter­me­di­ate AAA base­ball team:

“I never re­ally thought about it un­til to­day. I won­der if Base­ball Nova Sco­tia has thought about it? I know there’s a smok­ing pol­icy, which I checked, and it said mem­bers of both teams and um­pires shall not smoke or use smoke­less to­bacco — im­me­di­ate re­jec­tion if caught. That’s al­ways been there, but there’s all kinds of guys that smoke. It’s kind of over­looked. We don’t see liquor, but there’s lots of smok­ing here. But at this point, I’m re­ally not sure how (cannabis) will be han­dled. I don’t know if our league will do some­thing. There’s lots of guys on my team who smoke and lots of guys on my team who smoke mar­i­juana. I know guys have showed up be­fore and have been high. I’ve tried hard to con­vince them it would be in their best in­ter­est not to, but what they do be­fore they get here is hard to con­trol. When it be­comes le­gal it’ll be even harder to con­trol.”
