Peach city to pot city? More cannabis stores could be approved in Penticton, bringing total to 11

The City of Penticton is forging ahead with approving more cannabis retail store licenses, more than 10 months after federal legalization.

In a report to city council, planning manager Blake Laven recommends that city hall support three more non-medical cannabis retail store licenses, which would bring the total to 11.

The three locations are at 101-351 Westminster Ave. W. (Completely Cannabis Co.), 310 Comox St. (Green House Cannabis Boutique) and 2150 Main St. (Starbuds).

Laven said the locations meet bylaw requirements and no negative impacts are anticipated.
