Cannabis legalization could be a problem for Edmonton homeowners.

As an experienced residential Edmonton REALTOR® for more than 20 years, I can foresee growing Cannabis inside our Edmonton homes as a huge negative.



When selling a property, many buyers are sensitive to smells and find lingering cigarette smoke, pet smells, strong cooking odors very offensive. Marijuana will add to this list.

I understand the benefits and personally know seniors who really enjoy the relief of pain and the relaxing sensation it creates. However, passing a law to allow Edmontonians to grow cannabis in their own homes is completely insane.

For me personally, there are so many questions. Will we need a license to have a pot plant, like our family pets? Should we be smoking the cannabis inside our homes, the ingrained smell is no different than cigarette smells. What if we grow it outside? Who will be responsible for any losses? Let's drug our wildlife. Watching a "stoned" squirrel or bunny hopping down the back alley could be pretty funny. Will we need special insurances in our greenhouses? Are we allowed to play with, alternate this cannabis to create a more potent drug? Can we smoke it with children in the room?

If laws are implemented for growing marijuana inside our homes, will these laws also apply to certain poisonous household plants, making beer and wines, rolling cigarettes Will it stop there or will it continue until we have no freedom of our own property?

As a licensed real estate agent in Alberta, am I suppose to now report everyone who has a cannabis plant? Will my Seller's homes be considered a "Drug House"? Will it be "red flagged" by CMHC and all future mortgages will have to be conventional.
 
One of the key issues that CREA's federal affairs team has been working on recently is on Bill C-45 and the legalization of cannabis in Canada. This is a great article from the Canadian Real Estate Aassociation. - read more

Would love to hear your thoughts on growing cannabis in our Edmonton homes and on purchasing a home where homeowners smoke the cannabis inside.
