At its Special Council Meeting on January 15, Newmarket Council voted to opt-out of private cannabis retail stores in Town. The Town of Newmarket will be taking a measured approach to this topic, and will review and revisit their decision in a years time. By then, Council hopes more information will be available and can learn from the experiences of the municipalities that have opted-in.
Staff were also directed to prepare amendments or new by-laws as required and return to Council with recommendations as to how the smoking and vaping of cannabis should be regulated in Newmarket.
