Gibbons council is taking a cautious approach to cannabis legalization.
With the federal government planning on legalizing cannabis this summer or early fall, the Town of Gibbons is looking into changing their bylaws.
Growing, distribution and sales of products are all areas the town is looking into before setting any new laws in stone.
"Council will have to be held accountable to whatever the federal and provincial legislation is," said mayor Dan Deck.
The governments have set out basic regulations for cannabis, but the town is still allowed to strengthen laws if deemed necessary.
"We are waiting for legislation on how the consumption and sale goes, but that hasn't been leveled out yet," added Deck. "Once we see that we will firm up our policy locally and provide updates."
The discussion on cannabis is still in its early stages in Gibbons. The topic will come back to a future council meeting.
