LaSalle has become the latest municipality in Essex County to opt into the provincial cannabis retail store program.

Town council passed the motion unanimously last night.

It first heard from Rob Katzman, who along with his son Sam, own several stores, including ones in Windsor.

Katzman told council there was nothing to fear from the stores and that they are highly regulated.

“Cannabis now is not this Cheech and Chong weed-smoking vision that many people have. These businesses are highly regulated, highly organized. We as retailers must be good business people,” said Katzman.

But it didn’t take much convincing. Coun. Jeff Renaud was on board enthusiastically.

Mayor Marc Bondy is looking forward to the new policy creating jobs.
