The stoners of Peachland must have been feeling lazy on Tuesday night because nobody showed up to a public hearing about banning the retail sale of marijuana.
There was one letter plainly supporting the District’s decision to localize prohibition, and not a peep from anybody who thinks it should be sold in Peachland the way it will be everywhere else in Canada.
Less than an hour after the public hearing, Council passed third reading 5–0 with no discussion. Coun. Mario Vucinovic and Coun. Keith Thom were absent.
Selling recreational cannabis will be legal throughout the country on July 1, except in Peachland.
