CAN (ON): Cannabis-growing rules set by Niagara Falls council

The City of Niagara Falls will permit cannabis cultivation and production in select industrial zones, subject to several conditions and regulations.

Coun. Vince Kerrio said city council received “overwhelming objections” from residents who have “filled this council chamber, filled our computers or emails, or filled our phones with telephone calls” any time the issue has gone before council.

“We’re trying to do what the residents have overwhelmingly told us they want us to do and not have to face the marijuana in their area,” he said. During its Tuesday meeting, city council approved amendments to the municipality’s official plan, zoning bylaws and site-plan control bylaw regarding cannabis growing facilities.

The amendments are for licensed cannabis-production facilities, designated medical growth of cannabis and sensitive land uses. They do not regulate the growth of as many as four cannabis plants by an individual for personal use.
