3 Nelson B.C. Cannabis dispensaries to remain open after legalization
Three Nelson B.C. cannabis dispensaries to remain open after legalization
Three Nelson B.C cannabis dispensaries will remain active:
The Kootenay’s Medicine Tree,
The Nelson Potorium,
Nelson Compassion Club
The Green Room Society will suspend operations
Leaf Cross Health Society has not yet made its intentions public.
Jim Leslie of the Kootenay’s Medicine Tree said he has applied for recreational approval, but that he may opt out in favour of remaining a medicinal dispensary.
“The business licence didn’t make us legal in the first place, it was more a method of control. So when the business licence is gone, nothing really changes,” said Leslie.
“We’re still giving constitutionally protected access to our medical cannabis patients, and we’ll continue to do so until either the date of provincial inspection with our non-medical retail application, or perhaps we push into the future if we decide not to go through with that process. But right now we are in that process.”
