Canada Says It's Okay to Smoke Weed at National Parks

When Canada legalizes recreational marijuana, obviously many things will change. And that includes how safe hikers will be while toking up at their favorite camping sites.

Parks Canada announce that people will be allowed to use marijuana at campsites located in the country's national parks. While using marijuana in public spaces will still not be permitted at the national level in Canada, Parks Canada says they will consider campsites to be temporary private domiciles, and therefore will allow visitors to use marijuana at campsites.

Marijuana use will still be banned from public spaces at national parks, such as playgrounds, parking areas, bathrooms and other such places. Meanwhile in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec people will be allowed to use marijuana on hiking trails.

Parks Canada says this is essentially the same policy they employ for alcohol consumption in national parks.

This story simply highlights one of the many ways Canada is preparing for tomorrow's launch of recreational marijuana. The entire world will be watching to see how the country handles it, and so far it looks like they're pretty well prepared.
