    Landlords developing house rules on cannabis

    If you’re a tenant who shares your building with other renters, you’ll likely have to hold off on sparking up in celebration of legalized marijuana next month. When recreational cannabis becomes legal on Oct. 17, one of the few places Canadians can legally smoke will be in private homes. For renters who live in multi-dwelling buildings, where they’re allowed to light up is a bit more complicated.

A couple of people on the street chime in, each sending you in opposite directions. One person sounds like a local and speaks in a nonchalant manner, while the other uses a loud, confident voice but speaks with a strong accent. Who are you going to trust? A recently published study shows that unless they speak in a confident tone of voice, you’re less likely to believe someone who...
