Kingsville approves rezoning requests to allow for medical cannabis greenhousesPosted by On



A pair of applications for medical cannabis greenhouses were discussed by Kingsville council on Monday, after calls from residents to stop these kinds of developments spurred a public meeting held last December.

Council voted to approve a pair of separate but similar rezoning applications along County Road 34, allowing the applicants to grow medical cannabis in existing greenhouses following site plan approval and licensing through Health Canada. 

Both applications passed with Deputy Mayor Gord Queen as the lone vote against the first rezoning application, who was in favour of the second. 

Residents packed council chambers at previous meetings and voiced worries about the smell that comes from growing cannabis, suggesting it could negatively affect property values.
