The city of Regina is supporting the relaxation of rules of marijuana.
At Monday’s council meeting, council, for the most part, voted in favour of two amendments to a proposed cannabis retail bylaw, which would see the permission of marijuana sales at shops in the Warehouse District and the downtown core.
The only vote against both proposed amendments came from Councillor Bob Hawkins.
Mayor Michael Fougere noted he believes that once this bylaw is passed, it will offer more clarity on this matter.
“As I said in my comments, this is leveling the playing field,” he said. “Giving equal opportunity across the city. That’s as clear as can be.”
The bylaw will come back before council at the next meeting in July. For it to be passed, it will need a unanimous vote from all city councillors.
