Telephone Town Hall on Marijuana Legalization

Kootenay Columbia MP Wayne Stetski will be holding a telephone town hall next week when it comes to marijuana legalization.

Stetski says it will have impacts on health, the economy, law enforcement and for municipalities.

Participants will hear from four area experts, with the panel including Nelson Mayor Deb Kozak.

A recent federal task force on the issue made a number of recommendations, including the establishment of a minimum age of access and restrictions on advertising and promotion

Residents with a listed telephone will get a call regarding the telephone town hall.

It's next Tuesday starting at 6:30 pacific.
