    A new report says the Halifax Regional Municipality will have to hire eight additional bylaw officers to enforce new municipal cannabis rules. If council decides to follow all of the staff recommendations, it would cost about $970,000 a year. Once finalized, federal laws will let people grow four plants on their own residential property.  The HRM report cites concerns about the associated smell. They recommend only allowing plants to be grown inside the home. They also recommend banning smoking cannabis on all municipal property and prohibiting private retail sales and cannabis-consumption venues.    The province plans to allow cannabis to be sold at some Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation stores. HRM planners are still working on amendments to regulate the locations of any facilities for producing cannabis. HRM advised to ban outdoor marijuana plants and hire 8 pot bylaw officers
