The owner of a Penticton marijuana dispensary is getting another chance today to convince city council to overturn a staff decision to deny the non-profit registration of the Association for Medical Marijuana Awareness.

Jukka Laurio intends to run the association separately from his Herbal Green dispensary, but the two entities would share a building. The association is dedicated to informing the public about the benefits of medical marijuana.

However, Herbal Green is also operating without proper permits, so staff decided against registering the non-profit association.

Laurio was due to make his appeal at council’s Feb. 7 afternoon meeting, but was a no-show because he thought he was scheduled to appear at an evening session, according a staff report attached to the agenda for today’s meeting.

Council is also due to hear an appeal of business licence suspension from the owner of a youth centre that had been operating at 651 Main Street.

According to a staff report, The Whole was running without proper permits and zoning, and was subject to numerous complaints about noise, drunkenness and other disorderly conduct.
