“Loud and clear, the public has said they don’t want to see pot stores on every corner of Langford taking away the other services”
That’s Langford Mayor Stew Young, in today’s Times Colonist.
Langford is delaying defining zoning or issuing business licences to marijuana dispensaries until federal legislation legalizing the sale of marijuana comes into effect next year.
Other municipalities, such as Victoria, have moved forward with allowing marijuana distribution. On April 13, Trees Dispensary became the first cannabis retailer to be legally rezoned under the city’s new rules.
