One Pot Shop Rejected

A petition by seniors shut down a proposed pot shop in Vernon.

Vernon City council has voted not to support a proposed cannabis retail facility at 2813A - 35th street.  Council received a 43-signature petition citing concerns over the location and proximity to seniors and children. The facility was near a senior's home and a child development centre.

A second application for a retail shop on 48th Avenue across from Village Green Mall was approved by council.
