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.

Administration identified that changes may be required to regulate any production facilities as well as any potential retail operation. The existing use in the Land Use Bylaw only regulates physician-prescribed horticultural products (ie, medical marijuana).

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.
