Gananoque to Ban Pot in Public

Smoking pot in Gananoque could soon become illegal.

Gananoque Council voted Tuesday to ban consuming cannabis in public.

The vote to pass the new bylaw is set for November 20.

Just like alcohol, the outgoing council wants pot smoke off the streets as soon as November 21.

Mayor Erika Demchuk says if people don't follow the rules, they could be ticketed.

Area residents seem split on the move.

There is even a petition that has surfaced online to keep pot in public.
