BACKGROUND: A new Terrace company is looking to open a cannabis retail store here.
High Point Cannabis Ltd. has already picked out a vacant retail space in the Gobind Mall which was most recently occupied by the Skeena Waters Fly Shop.
The store is one of seven recreational marijuana stores looking at coming to Terrace’s downtown. High Point Cannabis Ltd. is the only private business so far to pass the province’s initial background check.
The company has submitted all required documents to the city and a public hearing was held Feb. 25 at city hall. One resident raised a concern about High Point Cannabis Ltd. being located in the U.S., but it was explained to be a separate company altogether. Concerns about increased traffic and congestion have been forwarded to the RCMP.
Do you think cannabis stores will have a negative impact on the community?
