This is leading edge because it includes other weeds and substances in the definition of smoking, by virtue of the wording “any other substances intended to be smoked or inhaled by the person holding it”. This wording also allows Englehart to ban the use of waterpipes by virtue of the word “inhaled.” Furthermore, use of all tobacco products is also addressed in the bylaw. The bylaw’s preamble cites sections 8, 9, 10 and 11 as well as the (lit) tobacco-specific section 115 of the Municipal Act. These sections enable municipalities to pass bylaws in the interest of the health, safety and well-being of people.
