SECHELT, B.C. - Councillors in a rural community on the Sunshine Coast, north of Vancouver, have given second reading to a proposed bylaw allowing medicinal marijuana grow ops on land zoned for industrial use.

That clears the way for a public hearing, set for May 1.

Just one District of Sechelt councillor voted against the bylaw, saying the revised regulations could cause more problems than they solve.

RCMP and the Sechelt Fire Department disagree, noting special zoning could improve safety and security, while district officials say they have already been approached by a group hoping to grow pot for medical marijuana users in the region.

Changes being contemplated to federal rules could ease commercial marijuana production for more than one client.

Sechelt's proposed bylaw would require specifics such as odour control, appropriate electrical upgrades and fire control measures, including sprinkler systems. (CKAY)
