With the legalization of cannabis fast approaching in July 2018, municipalities across Canada are struggling to prepare themselves to address challenges related to land use planning, emergency response, enforcement, public education, and many other issues as federal and provincial requirements continue to be gradually developed.

The AAMDC has been working hard to keep track of evolving municipal challenges and opportunities associated with cannabis legalization, and to pass information on to members. The Planning for Cannabis hub provides a variety of information and links to outside resources to support AAMDC members in preparing for what is a challenging and unpredictable issue.
