Quebec City’s Mayor Regis Labeaume has announced that the city will be taking a conservative approach come legalization of recreational cannabis on October 17. It will be forbidden to smoke or use cannabis in any public space, and it will be illegal to be high in public. 

The city is using the same approach it uses for alcohol, despite current provincial regulations treating it more like tobacco. 

The ban will also apply to the Plains of Abraham, despite it being federally owned, where many music events are hosted. 

Fines will start at $150 for someone caught smoking marijuana in public and go as high as $1,000 for repeat offences.

Labeaume says that the regulations can potentially loosened when the city has a better idea of how cannabis legalization plays out.
