The neighbourhood’s about to go up in smoke.

A Leslieville pot store applicant was among the 13 in Toronto (42 in Ontario) to win the province's second cannabis retail store lottery.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) lists the proposed store address as 1303 Queen St. E., which is a retail and residential building just east of The Burren.

That means the neighbourhood could be getting a government-approved cannabis retail shop, if all goes according to plan.

The lucky winners have until Aug. 28 to get paperwork in check for a full licensing review.
