Police in Canada have told people to stop reporting their neighbours for growing cannabis after the country lifted a ban on the drug.
Consumption will be legal anywhere where smoking is permitted – except in motor vehicles – for people aged 19 and above.
The lower chamber, the House of Commons, had voted in favour of the Bill C-45, otherwise known as the Cannabis Act, the day before.
But while Canadian police are keen to stress cannabis use is no longer illegal, officers themselves have been advised to refrain from sparking up.
Toronto police officers will be banned from serving on active duty within 28 days of consuming the drug.
