Illegal Marijuana Dispensaries Not A Priority For Vancouver Police Chief Adam Palmer

CANADA:  The Vancouver Police Department‘s new Chief Constable Adam Palmer agrees with federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose that the city’s flourishing marijuana dispensaries are breaking the law — but he isn’t planning a crackdown.

“They are illegal, so the minister is correct, there’s no issue there,” said Palmer Monday.

Last week, after Vancouver city council passed a groundbreaking bylaw to regulate and license the city’s roughly 100 pot dispensaries, Ambrose issued a strongly-worded statement that she was “deeply disappointed.”
