The nationwide legalization of non-medical cannabis by the summer of 2018 presents major challenges for all orders of government. Our cities and communities, after all, are the places where non-medical cannabis will be legally sold and consumed.
Getting this right is a big job. That’s why today we are launching the Municipal Guide to Cannabis Legalization.
FCM worked with legal, land-use planning and policy experts to develop a roadmap for how municipalities might choose to adapt, develop and enforce bylaws in domains ranging from land use management to business regulation to public consumption.
