NORFOLK COUNTY PREPARING FOR NEW LEGALIZED MARIJUANA LAWS 9/13/2017 7:27:33 AM
Officials at Town Hall say they will soon know how the sale and distribution of legalized marijuana will look like in Norfolk County.
Last week, Ontario became the first province to unveil its plans by announcing that it would closely mimic the province's current system for liquor.
The province will open 40 stores by next summer when marijuana is legalized and has said it will continue to crack down on illicit dispensaries
Norfolk's clerk Andrew Grozelle says while a majority of the rules are up to Ontario, they are already working to make sure marijuana stores don't pop up in our downtown cores.
Staff from Norfolk County will soon be attending a seminar which will outline the responsibility for municipal employees, including bylaw enforecement.
Meanwhile, staff will come back to Town Hall shortly to announce a plan to deal with personally licensed growers and the impacts it has to neighboring properties such as noise and odor.
