Sechelt set to tweak marijuana production bylaws ahead of public hearing

Councillors in Sechelt are refining a proposed bylaw dealing with medical marijuana production.

The draft bylaw put forward in April would have limited medical marijuana production to large lots in the Agricultural Land Reserve.

But after hearing from growers and the public, District staff are suggesting it should also be allowed on certain industrial properties.

The change got the endorsement of the planning Committee Wednesday, including Councillor Noel Muller.

The Committee is also recommending the bylaw allow growers who set up on industrial land to produce oils and edibles on site, if a recent Supreme Court ruling including those in the definition of medical marijuana is followed through with a change in Health Canada regulations.

Councillor Darnelda Siegers says before the bylaw goes to public hearing, however, people should also know what the business license rules for producers will look like.

Full Council has to approve the new version of the bylaw before it goes on to that public hearing.
