Defend Dispensaries - Public Hearings

We’ve come a long way. Marijuana policy is changing all over the world, and we have an important opportunity to advocate for sensible marijuana regulations starting on June 10th in Vancouver. If you want to include yourself in the leading edge of change, sign up to speak at the public hearings right here!

While we broadly support the new regulations, Sensible BC is still looking for patients and advocates to help push for key changes before the current proposal becomes law.We need your help to put pressure on Vancouver City Council.

Here are some of our key concerns about the legislation:

  • Local access: The zoning boundaries and buffer zones would force many dispensaries to either move or close. The regulations will also push all of the dispensaries out of the Downtown Eastside.
  • A ban on edibles, restricting access to patients who prefer their medicine as food rather than smoking
  • A new $35,000+ annual fee for dispensaries

If you or someone you know if affected by these regulations then City Council wants to hear from you. Follow this link to register for the public hearings today.

  • + so despite yesterdays supreme court ruling Vancouver wished to make up discriminatory bi-laws to ban edible cannabis products, good luck defending that human rights violation class action lawsuit Vancouver , you might wish to invest some of that tax payer money on a real lawyer before waving you magic Councillor by-law making wands again, as you really have consistently demonstrated that you have no respect or clue about law or science [ PERIOD . ]
