Intent of the Federal government is to enact Bill C-45 and Bill C-46, two bills that will legalize and regulate cannabis in Canada, by summer of 2018. In Alberta, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) will carry out licensing functions, as well as, manage the distribution of cannabis to retailers ensuring that retailers receive their products from a government-regulated distribution system, similar to the system in place for alcohol. Federally licensed growers will sell cannabis to the AGLC and privately operated provincially licensed cannabis retail stores will buy cannabis from the AGLS for retail to the public. Albertans will also have the option to purchase cannabis direct from the AGLC through government-operated online sales. The Town's role in addressing legal non-medical cannabis will focus primarily on determining where cannabis retail stores may locate (land use districting), local public consumption rules, and enforcement tasks related to public consumption and impaired driving. Providing residents and businesses the opportunity to participate in a public engagement survey enables grassroots participation while gives Council an additional tool for assessing community values surrounding these main issues that will be regulated under local jurisdiction. The Town is seeking the community's input, please note the Survey will close on May 31, 2018.
