Amid grumblings toward Ontario's pot plan and federal discussions at the Standing Committee on Health in Ottawa, life seems to go on in Vancouver, where another dispensary has been issued a business licence.
Westcoast Medicann, located at 3178 Cambie Street, has been issued a licence after successfully meeting all city zoning requirements and obtaining a development permit.
The dispensary, which according to its website, requires that all members are licensed to consume cannabis by Health Canada before purchasing cannabis, is a retail medical marijuana-related storefront under the City's medical marijuana-related use (MMRU) bylaws.
It is the 12th dispensary in the city to receive a business licence since the implementation of the MMRU bylaws in 2015.
The shop has been operating since 2014.
