Council also determined passed bylaws keeping cannabis retailers in urban areas at least 150 metres away from schools and provincial health care facilities, childcare centres and rehabilitation centres. In rural areas, this barrier would be at a minimum of 100 metres. Production facilities in urban and rural areas must stay 300 metres from the same sites, as well as residential areas. Any odour complaints must be dealt with within 48 hours. There are no separation requirements between liquor stores and stores selling cannabis.
