WEEK OF RUMOURS, speculation, intrigue and drugs. Whoever thinks life in Kamloops is life in the slow lane has not been paying attention to the ever-unfolding story of cannabis retailers vs. the City of Kamloops.
To bring you up to speed; Kamloops business licence inspectors visited all but one of the dozen or so cannabis dispensary outlets last week. The purpose behind each visit was to deliver a notice that in all but one instance included a statement that said, “No business licence can be issued at this time. Would strongly suggest. Cease operation on or before March 31, 2018.”
Marvin Kwiatkowski, the City’s Development, Engineering & Sustainability Director, explained most of these inspection reports as “informational letters”.
