Edson Cannabis Bylaws Reminder

Edson Town Council passed all three readings of the new Cannabis Consumption Bylaw on October 2nd, 2018. This bylaw bans the consumption of cannabis in all public spaces and outlines related fines. This bylaw goes into effect on October 17th, 2018.

The Cannabis Framework for changes to the Land Use Bylaw has also been approved. Below is information on the changes and related maps. The significant changes from the original draft bylaw are the removal of setbacks from government buildings, other cannabis related stores, and drinking establishments. They’ve also removed cannabis lounges from the framework to allow for Federal rules and guidelines on lounges and edibles to be established first.
