Planning for Cannabis
With the legalization of cannabis quickly approaching in summer 2018, municipalities across Canada are struggling to prepare themselves to address challenges related to land use planning, emergency response, enforcement, public education, and many other issues as federal requirements and the legalization date are being finalized.
RMA has been working hard to keep track of evolving municipal challenges and opportunities associated with cannabis legalization, and to pass information on to members. The Planning for Cannabis hub provides a variety of information and links to outside resources to support RMA members in preparing for what is a challenging and unpredictable issue. Please browse the resources below and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or have a resource you would be interested in sharing.
