Matt Maurer speaks to Global News about Ontario seeking to expand its marijuana market

It’s been 15 months since cannabis legalization and still in Ontario, almost a fifth of the population live in places where selling pot is illegal. As the province seeks to expand its marijuana market, some experts worry these areas will become obstacles. Torkin Manes' Cannabis Lawyer, Matt Maurer spoke with reporter, Jamie Mauracher, to explain why many Ontario communities opted out. 

According to Matt, municipalities might have opted in if they had more time to evaluate and had authority over where cannabis stores were sited.

"The provincial government said it must be 150 meters away from a school and aside from that, municipalities can't dictate where these stores go."
