Here’s a long post with my thoughts about what’s going on with some of the cannabis dispensaries, and the debates we’re having about complying with the new regime, or resisting and continuing to serve patients. Not surprisingly, I fall on the side of continued resistance.
I am a founding member of the Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (CAMCD).
We represent about 30 dispensaries across Canada, mostly in BC.
I am not currently on the CAMCD Board of Directors, but my dispensary, The Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary, is a member. I am very concerned about the direction our group is taking.
“The current board wants to change our name to remove the word ‘medical’ and the word ‘dispensaries.’ They are also pushing all member dispensaries to shut down now and apply for a legal permit before reopening. Member dispensaries who do not comply with the new rules would be kicked out of CAMCD.”
I think these are all very bad ideas!
We have a meeting on Friday to vote on this new plan.
