Cariboo Regional District OKs cannabis production

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) board has approved text amendments to its zoning and rural land use bylaws related to cannabis production.

Now, within the CRD, all types of federally-licensed cannabis production facilities are allowed within heavy industrial zones.
 
In June, the CRD Board adopted a policy for cannabis retail sales. The policy outlines evaluation criteria for considering cannabis retail sales applications and each proposed location will need to apply for site-specific rezoning.
 
In conjunction with its new policies and bylaws on cannabis, the CRD Board also decided to lift its moratorium on approvals of cannabis retail applications. Learn more about cannabis sales and production in the CRD at cariboord.ca/cannabis.
