Will this ban my use of marijuana in my home?

No, Section 8.38 of the General By-Law bans the consumption of Marijuana in public places and cultivation of Marijuana and Hemp (which look the same) in public view. In addition, it restricts residential personal manufacture and extraction at home to non-solvent based extraction methods, since methods which use combustible materials can be dangerous. With these exceptions, the by-law is generally aimed to regulate businesses not residents.
