Take Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons and the internet filter system it uses on its free, publicly accessible WiFi for its customers at every location across Canada, a service provided in conjunction with Bell Mobility.
Cannabis professionals and aficionados that spend time at the restaurant chain with their laptop or mobile devices might know that it’s difficult to access cannabis-related websites, even the legal ones.
The terms and agreements that one must accept in order to get access to the service include a provision that the service has no liability for the content accessed through its service.
“Be aware that some content, products or services may be offensive to you or may not comply with applicable laws where you access the Services.”
However, the terms do not mention the possibility of the service blocking access to some sites, including cannabis-related websites. Surely, we can have blocks for pornography, but is it necessary for legal cannabis content? (For the record, we did not check the reliability of the chain’s porn blocking capabilities, for obvious reasons.)
