Store front cannabis retailer gets a City of Victoria business license

The City of Victoria has issued the first business license to a store-front cannabis retailer.

Farmacy, located at 3055 Scott Street did not require rezoning.

The property is under an existing land use contract that trumps current zoning by-laws.

An inspection of the business confirmed that it is complying with regulations.

All other operators are required to apply for a rezoning.

To date, one property has been successfully rezoned, and 26 applications are in process.
