With recreational marijuana becoming legal sometime this year, the Town of High River has approved bylaws to enable its sale.
However, licenses for retail operations won't be issued until cannabis is legalized, but the Town has started accepting applications and issuing development permits for cannabis-related businesses.
Council also approved specific places where these businesses can set up shop.
Part of this by-law is the required separation between each business and what council calls "sensitive land uses," such as schools, public parks, and residential areas.
