Landlords in Quebec who want to restrict cannabis smoking in their properties have until January 15 to advise tenants whether their lease will change.

Once tenants receive the notice, they will have 30 days to contest the change to the Regie du logement and explain in front of the rental board why they want it contested.

The main reason for the bans, say landlords, are the same as those for banning cigarette smoking: there is potential to create a nuisance for others in the community, and the potential to stain units with the odour of smoke.

The court can take up to three months to resolve the issue, and during that time a person can continue to  smoke in areas they already do.

The smoking ban is not a ban on cannabis consumption within units. Users have many other options, including edibles and drinkables when they are federally legalized this year, as well as other high-tech options, such as smoke-free vaporizers.
