Committee seeks to rein in cannabis growers

Councillors vote to ask Ottawa for help in restricting the number of plants grown by medicinal users

Winnipeg will lobby the feds for more control over the number of marijuana plants a medicinal user can grow in one home.

After complaints that a few local residences each contained hundreds of the legally grown plants, council’s property and development committee voted Monday to ask Ottawa for help restricting the number.

The committee did not suggest the exact maximum number of plants that should be allowed.

Coun. Ross Eadie (Mynarski) pushed for the change, arguing the city should allow no more than 20 plants to be grown in each home, with commercial operations handling larger cultivation.
