With news of pot activist Dana Larsen allowing adults to buy marijuana without a prescription at his dispensaries, will other pot shops follow suit?
Earlier this week, Larsen announced if you’re over the age of 19, the Vancouver Dispensary Society will allow you to buy marijuana without a doctor’s prescription.
But will more dispensaries in the Lower Mainland follow the business model?
Speaking on CKNW Weekend, lawyer and cannabis activist Kirk Tousaw says it’s a natural progression towards accessibility for adults but…
“I’m not sure if we’ll necessarily see more of these, probably a few more.”
“What it does do is it shows the federal and municipal government that you can have a system of adult access to cannabis at the bricks and mortar store front level that causes no problem.”
Tousaw calls the move innovative, one that shouldn’t be condemned.
The Vancouver Police Department has said it won’t change its approach to marijuana.
