Campers wanting to smoke cannabis legally for the first time at Anthony Henday Campground in Alberta will have to follow special rules, according to the Innisfail Province

However, those rules still need to be clarified before the 2019 outdoor season begins.

The issue came up at town council’s regular meeting on Feb. 25 when representatives from the Innisfail Lions Club, which has managed the campground for the past seven years, made a financial report presentation.

Tom Reinhart, a Lions Club member and manager of the campground, noted the upcoming season will be the first time the facility will have to deal with the issue but was uncertain of the rules for cannabis consumption as the town owns the campground.

“They set the rules for how we run it and so certainly we will abide with whatever they come up with. They have already set up rules for (cannabis) use in town, so that won’t be any different. We are still in town,” said Reinhart.

He said he expects the town to get back to the club and tell them what they have to do, and they will “do their best” to follow whatever final direction is given.

Council was told by administration the Innisfail RCMP has already directed that campers wanting to smoke cannabis must do it inside trailers, and not outside the units on the campsite. However, Todd Becker, the town’s chief administrative officer, said the town will seek further clarification.
