A Vancouver Liberal MP says she supports the city regulating marijuana shops based on what she hears from her constituents.
The Harper government has chastised the city for trying to control an illegal industry.
Joyce Murray represents Vancouver Quadra.
“I hear from a lot of people in my neighbourhood who are concerned about the proliferation of unregulated pot shops and I totally understand their concerns.”
She says the city is trying to fill a gap that’s been created by the Conservatives’ inaction on marijuana, saying with so many dispensaries popping up, the “status quo” is not an option.
