We’re going into the fourth golf season in which the use marijuana is legal in Canada, something you rarely hear anything about these days.
At the time that cannabis was being legalized, the golf industry was going into uncharted territory and there were plenty of concerns.
How blatant would pot use be on the golf course? It was no secret that golfers would sneak weed or edibles on to the course previously, but it was always used discreetly before it was legalized.
What if junior aged players saw people toking up? Would there be a problem with impaired drivers in golf carts? Would the golf course have any responsibility if a high golfer was in an accident driving home, even if that person brought the pot in without management’s knowledge or consent?
There was a myriad of questions and concerns, but here we are nearly four years later. Have you ever experienced a serious incident at the golf business where you work as a result of the legalization of cannabis?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
