North Cowichan is looking into whether medical marijuana production must be allowed on all farmland, and if so, how to regulate it.
Mayor Jon Lefebure says the Municipality has a bylaw in place that doesn’t allow production facilities on the Agricultural Land Reserve.
He says, however, the Feds and provincial government have other ideas.
Lefebure says the Municipality must follow the rules outlined by the higher levels of government.
He says staff will be investigating different restrictions like size of property and boundary lines.
