Marihuana Legalization

Marihuana Legalization and rules for Saskatoon Police Officers

 

The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police has announced a ‘fit for duty’ approach, where marijuana would be treated similar to alcohol and prescription drugs while officers are on- or off-duty.

“Fit for duty meaning when you show up for work we expect you to be able to work, carry out your duties assigned,” Saskatoon Police Association president Dean Pringle said.

“It seems to be the best approach going forward because it is a legal substance similar to alcohol for personal consumption so fit for duty seems to be best, most pragmatic approach.”
