Recreational use of marijuana use will be legal in Canada next year.

There will be a few information sessions in our region to help residents better understand what’s being planned for legalization.

Green Cannabis Consulting founder Jeff Thompson says they’ll explain some of the plant’s medical benefits as well.

He says one of the more useful lessons will eplain the differences between the main cannabinoids found in marijuana, THC and CBD, the latter is more commonly used to treat illnesses.

One session goes at Green Cannabis’ Trail location on 1320 Cedar Avenue from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

The other is at the Castlegar location on 102-2032 Columbia Avenue November 30th from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
