So now that pot is legal in Canada, when can High River residents starting buying it locally?

Good question.

The short answer is, no one is really sure.

Town Planner Sarah Peck says there's a handful of stores in various stages of completion in High River.

"There's four in the downtown and two in the southeast. Two of those six have received occupancy permits. The others are still under construction and none of them so far have received their AGLC (Alberta Liquor & Gaming Commission) license from the Province."

Peck says when they get those licenses, and have filled all the Town requirements around their buildings, they'll be free to open their doors.
