Not at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.

That’s the message coming from the educational institution when it comes to cannabis use on campus.

The smoking and consumption of cannabis is prohibited in all of their buildings, facilities, and on all of their properties, including designated smoking areas.

If a student or guest arrives impaired at, to, or on a Polytechnic campus, they will be addressed under the school’s ‘Cannabis and Tobacco Use’ and ‘Cannabis Safety and Security’ policies respectively.

Tobi Strohan, the Vice President of Student Services for all four of the provinces Polytechnic campuses, says, “Related to our commitment to provide a healthy and safe environment for both working and learning, for students, employees, visitors, faculty members...anyone who shows signs of impairment from cannabis or other substances would be addressed under the appropriate policies and processes. Predominantly that would relate to our conduct policies.”

Strohan explains who will do the policing of cannabis on campus. “The campus communities broadly can report concerns that they might have that might impact [the] safety or well-being of our community members. In terms of whom they would report to, our campus safety and security teams are the ones who would receive those concerns, and ensure that appropriate follow-up takes place.”

A ‘Reasonable Accommodation Policy’ is in place for those who have been prescribed medical marijuana.

Pot became legal in Canada on October 17th.
