Suburban mayors and councillors who voted not to allow retail cannabis shops in their jurisdiction may have felt they were doing what they could to regulate how and where pot would be sold in their neighbourhoods, but they are wrong. Very wrong. The argument at the time from many politicians was that municipalities needed a greater say in where stores could be located. It’s an argument with some merit. Municipalities should have a say.
