Numerous developers are hoping to produce cannabis in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.
 
Leading up to the legalization of recreational cannabis, Director of Development Services Regina Sadilkova says the regional district had received about 30 letters of intent from prospective developers.
 
"As required, they have submitted to us a letter of intent. But, we wouldn't necessarily know where they are in the process of development."
 
The TNRD allows cannabis production in both industrial and agricultural zones.
 
Sadilkova says a facility currently under construction between Chase and Westwold is the only grow operation to be issued a business license thus far.
