It is with great sadness that we must announce the forced closure of three of our #CannabisCulture dispensary locations and the laying-off of over 50 employees, due to heavy-handed tactics by the @CityofVancouver #SaveOurDispensaries #Vancouver https://t.co/eKYTNU98iM— Cannabis Culture (@CannabisCulture) January 9, 2019
Cannabis Culture and other cannabis dispensaries are asking the City to grant emergency licences to the shops, so they can continue to serve thousands of medical patients and other customers who require products that are not currently available at recreational stores, like extracts and edibles.
Every phone call counts. We're aiming to get 1000 people to make these calls over the next two weeks. Will you pick up the phone, and join us?

Vancouver's dispensary bylaws were written long before legalization, when Harper was in power. They bylaws are very restrictive and are written so that the majority of dispensaries in the city simply can't comply. Now that the federal laws have changed, Vancouver's tight restrictions on cannabis store locations don't make sense anymore.Learn more
