Give cities a say on cannabis retail licensing

Cannabis is a legal, regulated product that should be available in ways that meet community needs. But under current laws, some communities have few legal cannabis shops, while others are seeing increasing concentrations of them that risk the diversity of our main streets.

Bill 235 amends the Cannabis Licensing Act to:

● Align the process for new cannabis retail licenses with that used for liquor licenses

● Give municipalities and, through them, the local community, a greater say in the licensing process

● Ensure access to legal cannabis is maintained without pushing out diverse businesses that make our local economies thrive

Add your name to call for Bill 235 to be passed now.
