North Bay is not included on a list of 15 municipalities that have been chosen as hosts for standalone cannabis retail stores.
As it stands, the nearest approved retailer of cannabis will be in Sudbury.
The most recent additions:
- Lindsay (Kawartha Lakes)
- Niagara Falls
- St. Catharines
If all goes as planned, recreational use will be legalized by July 1, 2018. The provincial government plans to have 80 total LCBO cannabis stores by July 2019 and 150 by 2020.
