If you're for or against a cannabis shop in the Silver Hills area of Greater Sudbury, you have until March 6 to provide feeback on the proposed location.

The store, listed under the name Highlife on the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario website, would be located at 1299 Marcus Drive.

It is one of 14 proposed locations currently undergoing public notice. It would be located in the former Town Shoes storefront, and operated by Anton Lucic. Lucic was one of two Northern Ontario licence winners announced in the cannabis lottery held in January.

There is no information online about Anton Lucic.

Ontario's first retail cannabis stores are slated to open April 1. Until then, recreational cannabis can only be legally sold through the province's government-operated website.
