Provided they show up at work fit for duty, your local police officers will be free to smoke a joint with the neighbours when recreational cannabis becomes legal under federal law on Oct. 17.

While members of the Canadian Armed Forces must refrain from using cannabis in the eight hours before they report for duty and for 24 hours before handling a firearm, regulations for police officers don’t appear to be as tight.

The Vancouver Police Department won’t apply any specific time restriction between using cannabis and reporting for duty, which is consistent with the department’s policy concerning alcohol and prescription drugs.
