Cannabis Legalization

With the proposed legalization of cannabis expected to come into effect in 2018, the City of Leduc has developed new rules to accommodate the production, sale and consumption of cannabis.

 
Land Use and Business Licence Bylaw Amendments
On June 25, City Council approved amendments to the Land Use and Business Licence Bylaws to manage the recreational sale and production of cannabis in Leduc. Amendments to the Land Use Bylaw will come into effect July 18, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. – development permit applications will not be received by the city until this time. More information regarding applications can be found in Cannabis-related Business.
 
Community Standards Bylaw Amendment (Public Use)
On June 25, City Council approved amendments to the Community Standards Bylaw to manage the public use of cannabis. These amendments will make the public use of cannabis similar to rules governing the public consumption of alcohol. Smoking and vaping cannabis will be prohibited in public places, which are defined in the bylaw as any property, publically or privately owned, that the public may have access to. Cannabis consumption will be permitted in private residences.
