Party planners and festival promoters are disappointed about a recent decision from the British Columbia government turning down the option for special permits to allow access of cannabis at special events.

According to a statement from the Ministry of the Attorney General, the provincial government has no plans to issue cannabis-related special event permits at this time.

Currently, vendors may  apply to serve, sell and consume alcohol at celebrations, such as weddings, and community events, such as concerts. The permits are regulated by the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch of the government.  

Event promoters say they are disappointed but not surprised, as the process to a fully-established recreational market that could include things such as smoking lounges and edible and drinkable cannabis is taking a slow approach. The decision could be reversed in the future.
