The January 22nd deadline is quickly approaching.

Ontario’s 444 municipalities have to make a decision whether to opt in or out in regards to allowing retail cannabis stores in its area. The Township of Madawaska Valley has not yet made a decision but last night, Council in Bancroft decided to opt in even though, Mayor of Bancroft Paul Jenkins doesn’t think it’ll change much.

As of this morning, according to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, 56 municipalities have opted in and 26 have opted out.
