CAN (BC): Smelly cannabis facility draws complains in Middleton

Residents of the Quail Run neighborhood in Vernon will need to wait for the city council to take action on the cannabis smell hazing up the area. Coun. Akbal Mund advised a delegation from the neighborhood to reach out to the provincial Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch after the group brought the issue forward at the council meeting.

However, the LCRB told Castanet that cannabis producers and cultivators are not its responsibility. It’s up to local government to deal with the smelly problem, a government spokesperson said.

“It’s the responsibility of local governments to ensure compliance and enforcement of local bylaws for cannabis producers,” the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General spokesperson said in an email.

Brian Johnson, spokesperson for the Quail Run delegation, said the cannabis operator at 1701 Kosmina Rd. was issued a city notice to “reduce the emitted smell... and it did happen for a short period, but came back strong as ever.”
