Legalization of Cannabis

Information for parents/guardians, students and staff regarding legalization of cannabis

​With the legalization of cannabis on October 17, 2018, the Ontario Government provides rules that keep cannabis out of the hands of children and youth, and keep our roads safe. 

Ontario will have laws in place about how, where and who can buy and possess cannabis in the province.  The Lambton Kent District School Board also continues to prohibit cannabis and other related products.  

Students, staff and visitors continue to be prohibited from smoking or vaping on school grounds. This includes the smoking or holding of lighted tobacco and cannabis (marijuana), and includes a ban on the use of e-cigarettes and electronic smoking devices.  

Students, staff and visitors are also prohibited from using shisha, smokeless tobacco and/or cannabis products (unless medically prescribed), and all related accessories. This code of conduct is in effect on school property or involving school business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and on school buses, or during any part of an official school field trip, including athletic team trips and school club excursions.  

Failure to comply with the code of conduct may result in internal student discipline (e.g., warning, notification to parents, withdrawal of privileges, suspension, etc.), and/or charges and fines issued by an Officer of a Provincial Enforcement Agency.

Read the LKDSB's Alcohol and Drugs Policy and Regulation and Smoke-Free Environment Administrative Procedure.
