A Nanaimo Street dispensary is the latest to move forward in the City of Vancouver‘s business license application process, bringing the total number of applications at the second stage of the process to 17.
The new location is the second Herb Co. operation approved by the city, with another application from the chain at 1189 Main Street.
“The Herb Co.’s goal is to assist with the learning of and gaining access to medical marijuana and other alternative medicines, leveraging our members to holistic lifestyle practices,” reads a statement from the business in its operational letter to city officials.
“The dispensary provides safe access to cannabis for its qualified members suffering from various health conditions.”
176 applications were received by the city, the vast majority of which were rejected due to violations of city bylaws that require medical marijuana related operations be located 300 metres away from schools, community centres and other dispensaries.
