Marijuana dispensaries are very prevalent all around Canada and particularly in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are generally for-profit businesses that sell marijuana and are distinct from both the federal government’s medical marijuana program, as well as compassion clubs, the latter of which are typically not for profit and are generally designed to meet health-based needs.
Although marijuana dispensaries are technically illegal, they are tolerated in many cities, operating in the gray area of the law. In fact, there has been a sharp rise in marijuana dispensaries in Ontario due to the discussion around legalization and the fact that some provinces appear to be moving in favour of marijuana decriminalization and even legalization.
