Since the last update on Jan. 6, the list has added locations at 3615 West 17 Ave and 511 West 7 Ave, both of which are subject to approval from Vancouver’s director of planning.
The 7 Ave location application comes from Apple Health Society, operating an Eden Medicinal. This is the second Eden Medicinal to move to the second stage of the licensing process after Scooter Health Society’s proposed 3441 Kingsway location. The Kingsway location has met with opposition from a local church, petitioning city hall to reject the development.
At 17 Ave, Apollo Medical Society has promised, in their operational letter to the city, that “there is a bad stigma around these stores” and they “will be attracting a higher end clientele.”
Apollo’s letter claimed they “are the first and only retail medical cannabis provider that does analytical testing on the products.”
