McLeod alerts property owners to new medical marijuana regulations

How can the Liberal government ensure that only a limited amount will be grown?

KAMLOOPS  – Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, cautioned property owners recently regarding the dangerous implications of new medical marijuana regulations.

“I want all property owners to know that new regulations put into effect by the Liberal government allow authorized Canadians to grow limited amounts of marijuana for their own medical purposes, or designate someone to grow it for them – without the consent of the landlord,” said McLeod.

“I have had many property owners contact me who have had their rental property destroyed by grow ops,” stated McLeod. “As reported in 2014, B.C. applicants grew close to 1.7 million indoor plants. With the new regulations in effect, this problem is going to grow exponentially.”

“With no commitment to inspections by Health Canada or the police, how can the Liberal government ensure that only a limited amount will be grown and that it won’t be diverted into the black market?” questioned McLeod. “As reported yesterday in the Vancouver Sun, we learned about a marijuana grow-op costing a BC landlord $135,000 in damages.”


“There is virtually no recourse for property owners who find themselves in this situation,” concluded McLeod.
