Ontario is putting a marijuana retail store not too far from Haliburton County.

The province announced the locations of 15 pot shops on Tuesday, and one of them will be in Lindsay.

Recreational marijuana use will be legal on Canada Day of 2018.

According to legislation passed in Queen’s Park, people can grow up to four plants at home.

In a past interview, Minden Hills Mayor Brent Devolin says there are many unanswered questions when it comes to rising police costs as well as creating municipal bylaws when it comes to cannabis.

Devolin says he hopes those questions will be answered by the province at a conference in January.

The stand-alone stores will be run by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.
