Vancouver Issues First Medical Marijuana License

Vancouver is moving forward with regulating the city’s medical marijuana industry, issuing its first license to an MMJ dispensary.

A spokesperson for the Western Canadian seaport told the Globe and Mail the Wealth Shop was issued a license to  operate near the University of British Columbia.

Vancouver became the country’s first city last year to issue rules governing MMJ dispensaries, which are illegal under federal law. It balked at issuing licenses to about about 140 dispensaries because of rule violations, such as locating too close to a school.

The city recently began a crackdown on unlicensed dispensaries.
