City council in St Catharines, ON, has opted out of a proposed measure to temporarily freeze cannabis production facilities in the region.
Council members listened to testimony from business owners such as CroCan Enterprise owner Gerry Crnic, who said his proposed cultivation facility has plans to control emissions of light and odour as well as stringent security measures in place.
“Industry standards are if you use a charcoal filter there’s no odour,” Crnic told council earlier this week. “I’m sure there are people who cut corners, but there’s definitely technology out there to be able to deal with this.”
