“As of Oct. 1, UFV has gone completely smoke-free. From that date forward, smoking will not be allowed anywhere on UFV campuses. This policy change comes less than a month before recreational cannabis usage will be legalized across Canada. The timing isn’t a coincidence, and it raises the question of how these new laws will affect one another.
UFV’s new smoke-free status applies to smoking and vaping of all kinds, including both marijuana and tobacco. In contrast to UFV, UBC announced that they will allow marijuana to be used on their campus when it becomes legal. An email has been circulating on student accounts with information on cannabis, but it is simply a poster with basic information that pretty much everyone who is old enough to be a student here already knows. To be safe, it is best to assume that any regulations against smoking apply to all substances, unless otherwise specified.”
