Légalization of Cannabis : Council Will Vote on the By-law during next Council Meeting

During the upcoming Council meeting, the Municipal Council will vote on the standardized by-law regulating the use of cannabis in public spaces.

The notice of motion and the draft by-law were submitted during the last Council meeting on October 2nd. This by-law will replace by-law number 17-RM-04 previously aimed at maintaining public peace and good order within the limits of the Municipality of Chelsea. The draft regulation provides for a ban on smoking, of any material, in public spaces. 

«7.4 Il est interdit à quiconque, se trouvant sur une propriété publique de se battre, de consommer des boissons alcoolisées « sauf si un permis à cet effet a été émis par l’autorité compétente », de consommer des drogues, de fumer ou de se conduire de manière à troubler la tranquillité et la paix publique.»
