CANNABIS CULTURE – The Vancouver Police Department has released an informal set of “common sense” guidelines for the city’s “illegal” medical marijuana dispensaries in the wake of several recent raids.
“There are no specific written rules or checklist, but these businesses should use some basic common sense,” VPD Constable Brian Montague told Cannabis Culture. “Don’t market to children. Don’t sell to children. Don’t create fire hazards. Don’t operate in a manner that clearly puts financial gain ahead of public safety or providing any type of medical service.”
The VPD’s official-unofficial protocol comes in the form of an email to Cannabis Culture in response to questions about yesterday’s raid on Budzilla, a medical dispensary and manufacturer of cannabis edibles and concentrates located on Kingsway Steet.
