No toking on beaches

The Manitoba government plans to ban people from smoking cannabis in most public places including parks and beaches.

Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen has introduced a bill that proposes strict guidelines for when recreational cannabis becomes legal later this year.

Smoking or vaping cannabis isn't to be allowed on streets, school grounds, parks, beaches or restaurant patios.

It's also to be banned in most indoor public areas, with some exceptions such as palliative care units in hospitals.

The proposed law calls for new penalties for people who drive under the influence of cannabis.

Fines and licence suspensions would be similar to those already in place for drivers impaired by alcohol.
