POLL: Join the discussion on cannabis retailers in Penticton

Should cannabis retailers be banned, only privately-owned, government run?

After months of public engagement, city staff brought forward a framework for municipal regulation of cannabis within Penticton, including the number of stores to be allowed in the city, hours of operation and where they may operate.

The framework will not be finalized likely until October, staff said, with more consultation to be done, including with the business community.

Recently, the Town of Osoyoos voted on parts of their municipality framework and decided they do not want government-run cannabis retail outlets in their town.
