Salmon Arm Cannabis, opening in the former Dough Boyz location, and Downtown Cannabis, which will open in a space that was formerly a portion of the Downtown Liquor Store but now has a separate entrance, were approved at a Nov. 2018 city council meeting.

Once they are open, the stores will join Green Canoe Cannabis located in Canoe, and the Greenery which opened up shop off the Trans-Canada Highway on Alexander Street NE.

City of Salmon Arm policy caps the number of cannabis stores allowed to open in the city’s downtown core at four. With the Greenery up and running and Downtown Cannabis and Salmon Arm Cannabis soon to open, only one downtown spot remains.

Applications are in the works for two stores on Lakeshore Drive, one in the former Windmill Meats building and the other in the same location as Eden which was operating as a cannabis dispensary prior to the legalization of cannabis on Oct. 17 2018.
