Collectively the city's books of evidence – by-laws, provincial acts, federal regulations and expert credentials – were more than a foot thick. By contrast Dustin McGregor held a folder with a dozen or so pages of notes to which he referred. Two members of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) had come to Owen Sound council chambers to hear McGregor's appeal of the city's zoning by-laws regarding a proposed medical marijuana facility.

McGregor has no personal stake in the marijuana business in Owen Sound.
He says he is not a smoker nor a grower, and has no medical prescription to use the drug. And he made it very clear that he was not opposing the concept nor the development of the medical marijuana plant being built by Canadian Bioceutical Corporation on the former PPG property in Owen Sound's industrial park.

"On the contrary," McGregor said prior to the hearing, "I have had email exchanges with Scott Boyes [president of Canadian Bioceutical] on a number of occasions, stating that I would withdraw the appeal if it were in any way interfering with the progress of his business."

So what was the reasoning behind McGregor's appeal of Owen Sound's zoning by-law that added marijuana production to the permitted land uses in a few proscribed areas of the city?
