Friel blasts province’s pot plan

Mayor Chris Friel is blasting the province’s pot plan.

Friel says independent growers will be sidelined by the monopoly operated by L-C-B-O and do nothing to eliminate the black market for marijuana.

Friel, who is the chair of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario task force on marijuana legalization, says the province’s approach is in opposition to what has been suggested by municipalities and others with an interest in the industry.

He says voices outside Toronto and Ottawa need to be considered in a decision that will have a dramatic impact on municipalities.
