VICTORIA —   Premier John Horgan says B-C's rules for using recreational marijuana in public spaces could mirror provincial regulations for smoking cigarettes.

    He says the province has heard from people concerned about people second-hand smoke from marijuana and those who say they look forward to smoking pot in community areas.

    British Columbia's current Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act sets a six-metre smoke-free buffer zone around doorways, air intakes and open windows to public and work places, including stores, offices, pubs and cafes.

    Recreational use of marijuana in Canada becomes legal on July 1st and details on B-C's marijuana policy are expected early next year.
