Huntsville Opts In For Cannabis Sales
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.
