Last year, the federal government committed to legalizing recreational-use cannabis.
Each level of government has different responsibilities that pertain to the legalization. Municipalities (like the City of Chestermere) will be making decisions about:
- Rules and regulations for businesses (retail and production) operating within Chestermere
- Rules and regulations relating to public consumption within Chestermere
To provide your opinion about these topics and to learn more about cannabis regulations for Chestermere, visit www.chestermere.ca/legalization. Paper copies of the survey are also available at City Hall.
Note for potential retailers: The City of Chestermere has NOT yet passed any regulations allowing for cannabis production nor sale in Chestermere. It is anticipated that recreational-use cannabis will not be legalized until at least August 2018.
