Vernon looks at capping cannabis stores

A 10th business licence application comes before Vernon council Tuesday

So how many cannabis business licence applications are too many?

One Vernon councillor wants to find out.

Akbal Mund will bring a notice of motion to council’s regular meeting Tuesday, near the end of the agenda, asking that council direct administration to provide a report with options to restrict the number of cannabis retail stores permitted to operate in Vernon.
