Huntsville Opts In For Cannabis Sales

Posted: 2018-12-17 11:51:35 By: hbr

Huntsville councillors voted in favour of opting in on cannabis sales at last week’s special council meeting.

The town is the first in the region to make a decision on the issue.  The province has set January 22nd as the deadline to either opt in or opt out.

The province will be distributing 50% of the federal taxes collected on cannabis to all municipalities in the province, but only those municipalities that opt in will receive a share of the remaining funds.

The other municipalities in the region have yet to decide to opt in or opt out.
