FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Peace River Regional District has postponed Thursday’s public hearing regarding its proposed bylaw that would prohibit the sale of recreational cannabis and cannabis accessories, including pipes, bongs, vaporizers, and other items that could be used to consume cannabis.

The PRRD Board previously approved second reading of the proposed bylaw at the Regional Board meeting on July 26th.

The bylaw was first introduced and passed first rading back on February 22nd, after which it was sent off for a legal review.
