As the reality of legalized cannabis permeates through Canada, a growing number of Canadian institutions are facing decisions regarding their tolerance of cannabis. Notably, the Canadian Armed Forces has determined that it will restrict the use of marijuana but it cannot legally ban use of the substance. In an exclusive interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Lt. Gen. Chuck Lamarre, who is the chief of military personnel, said Canadian soldiers will respect whatever law is on the books. Lamarre added, “But at the same time, I think Canadians are expecting our operational readiness and our ability to do our business must never be compromised.” The rules of governance on the issue will not only reflect those in uniform, but will also apply to the roughly 30,000 civilian employees that support Canada’s military.
