Red Deer city council will discuss allowing cannabis sales in more locations on Monday.
Administration is recommending that council allow the legal sale of marijuana in some commercial areas of Red Deer that currently do not permit cannabis sales.
If council approves the change, marijuana could be sold in shopping centres as well as other areas.
Currently, cannabis stores can only locate in the city centre and major arterial districts.
Council will hear that after 14 months of monitoring, no adverse effects were found on land use, and few problems were brought forward when the city did public consultations about the legal sale of marijuana.
Any issues that did come up were able to be resolved.
The public portion of the city council meeting will start at about 3 p.m. Monday. It will be videotaped and can be viewed on the city’s website.
