In the downtown core of Kitchener, there are more than a few cannabis stores.
One particular area will eventually grab your attention once the stores are set up, according the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario’s interactive map of licensed cannabis businesses.
On King Street West from Gaukel Street to Ontario Street, there will be no less than five cannabis stores should they all progress successfully (one is in the public notice period). If you count The Cannabist Shop on the far corner of King and Gaukel, that makes six.
This cluster is a perfect example of why local mayors are calling for regulation from the province around distancing those shops.
