Submission to City of Vancouver on Regulation of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Posted on

The BC Civil Liberties Association is heartened that the City of Vancouver is attempting to responsibly regulate medical cannabis dispensaries in the city. We applaud the City for taking such a forward-looking initiative. However, we have concerns about several aspects of the regulatory scheme being proposed. Cannabis is a medicine, and medical cannabis dispensaries should be permitted and regulated in the city in a like fashion to other kinds of medical dispensaries. We are concerned that aspects of the proposed by-law will be unduly onerous, and will restrict access to medical cannabis dispensaries without any compelling rationale. Our concerns are set out in the submission letter linked below.
