At the June 7th Policies & Priorities Committee meeting, information was provided by County administration regarding the federal legislation on cannabis legalization planned for 2018, and the impacts it could have at the municipal level, in particular on the County's Land Use Bylaw.

The committee's direction was to continue monitoring the developments at the Federal and Provincial level and not to proceed with bylaw amendments at this time.

As part of the discussion, the committee in encouraging County residents to respond to the Province of Alberta's survey aksing Albertans' opinion on how to adapt to the new federal cannabis legislation.

The survey is available until July 31, 2017.
