Edmonton Police Services has announced that all sworn members will not be able to smoke or consume cannabis in any way regardless of their on-duty obligations. 

Cheryl Voordenhout, a spokeswoman for the EPS, said the decision will be reviewed every six months and could be altered as they see fit. 

Voordenhout went on to say the reason for the decision was that police are held to a higher standard than civilians and may also be called for duty at any time. 

In an official statement, she stated “this decision takes into account the Occupational Health and Safety, Police Act and Collective Agreement obligations on the EPS and its members, the importance of public safety, the known impairing effects of cannabis use, and the current uncertainty with respect to duration and testing of impairment.”
