The High River Chamber of Commerce is jumping on board with local Cannabis shops opening up in Town.

Chamber President Steven Muth says they're more than happy to see these stores open up in High River as long as the rules laid out by various levels of government are followed.

"Absolutely. If the proper rules are put in place by the local municipality to ensure those businesses are legislated and looked after properly, any business in town is a good business. It's an employer, it drives property taxes and rents, and so on and so forth."

He says he expects debate over the moral implications of cannabis shops setting up in High River, but as far as the Chamber goes, they're happy to see them set up shop.
