Vancouver Sets Public Hearing For Proposed Marijuana Shop Rules

CANADA:  The City of Vancouver’s proposal to regulate medical marijuana shops with a set of tough new rules will go to public hearing on June 10.

It’s a chance for the public to weigh in on regulations suggested in April to deal with the influx of pot shops within city limits that currently operate outside the law.

If council passes the regulations, Vancouver would be the first Canadian municipality to bring dispensaries into a legal framework, a move that’s strongly opposed by the federal government.
