Vancouver pot shops: City prepares another round of injunctions
Three of the 17 medical marijuana dispensaries named in injunction applications filed by the City of Vancouver last month have voluntarily closed down and more injunctions are coming by the end of the month, according to councillor Kerry Jang.
He called it a small victory in the fight to regulate pot shops in the city.
“We are slowly but surely getting compliance,” he said.
“It is certainly a lot better, a lot more effective than any other approach that you can take, like sending in the police to shut them down.”
The city has handed out 351 tickets to the 52 locations that remain open past the city’s closure deadline of April 29.
