Medical marijuana counselling businesses to be regulated under Calgary’s land use bylaw
Calgary city council has approved rules limiting where medical marijuana counselling businesses can set up and restrict how many can be in certain areas.
Council voted 10-3 to approve an amendment to the land use bylaw (LUB) to include a new category for such operations.
The change means the businesses will need to apply for development permits, giving people a chance to challenge them.
The new rules also stipulate that the businesses cannot be located within 300 metres of another medical marijuana counselling centre and must be at least 150 metres away from schools.
