“My house is next to a private daycare. I'm wondering if it's ok for me to smoke cannabis in my garage? How about in my yard?”

With regards to any question about the location of consumption, it is best answered by the NB Cannabis Control Act.  There it details where one is not allowed to consume cannabis - within this it does not prohibit an adult (19+) from consuming while in a private dwelling or on vacant land, where they have permission from the owner or occupant.
