Officers with the Norfolk detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police were called this week to a Simcoe, Ontario residence after thieves stole some cannabis and a bong that had been on the home’s porch.
Although the amount of weed was not specified, individuals aged 19 and older in Ontario can possess, purchase, consume and grow cannabis.
Information from the provincial government notes adults can smoke and vape cannabis in many outdoor public places (such as sidewalks), designated smoking guest rooms (in hotels, motel and inns) and in private residences. This includes the home’s porch or backyard, according to the Peel Regional Police.
