Medical marijuana blocked

Medical marijuana will not be grown in Enderby.

City council has adopted a bylaw that prohibits medical marijuana production facilities in virtually all zones.

“It doesn’t need to be in the city just like a dairy farm shouldn’t be in the city,” said Coun. Brad Case.

“It should  be out in the Agricultural Land Reserve.”

The city bylaw will regulate medical marijuana production in the ALR, but there is very limited ALR property in Enderby, so such activities are unlikely.

“Our community is not big enough to have proper space for such facilities,” said Coun. Greg McCune.

“We don’t have land remote enough from schools, playgrounds or public areas (as specified under federal rules).”

Medical marijuana production facilities could ultimately be allowed in some areas of the adjacent rural area depending on regional district bylaws.
