CANADA: There are many neighbourhoods in Vancouver where you can’t drive down the street without seeing medical marijuana dispensaries.
There are 60 of them in the city of Vancouver alone. However, under federal laws, dispensaries are illegal.
When Canada’s marijuana laws changed last year, the dispensaries remained illegal.
“We moved to a system whereby medical marijuana, the growing of marijuana for medical purposes, would be taken out of neighbourhoods,” said Parliamentary Secretary Paul Calandra on Global News BC1.
