Kelly Coulter is a writer, environmentalist and farmers’ advocate. She has been involved with cannabis policy for more than 10 years.

 
There was a time when if you were a cannabis farmer, the golden rule was to be a good neighbour. It was illegal, after all, and the last thing you wanted to do was draw unwanted attention.

But despite the novelty of the recently legalized industry, the stink of the status quo persists, literally and figuratively.

Public Health Ontario published a report last year to address concerns of increased grievances, and municipalities in lower mainland British Columbia have recently approached the federal government about concerns over how production licences are being issued.
