Cannabis Stores in Newmarket
The Town is looking for feedback from our residents on Cannabis Retail Sales in Newmarket. As you may be aware, as of October 17, 2018, consumers are able to purchase cannabis online through the Ontario Cannabis Store via the approval of Federal Cannabis Legalization and Regulation known as the Cannabis Act.
Store-front retail sales will not be permitted until, at the earliest, April 1, 2019. A decision on whether private cannabis retail shops will be permitted in Newmarket will be made by our Council in January 2019.
To date public feedback has been obtained in the following ways...
