A new business called Health Cannabis has taken over a vacant storefront on Water Street in downtown St. John’s.
The minimal-looking business, with HC Inc. on its exterior, has a locked door and a sign that reads “members only,” and directs people to a website to register for membership.
Inside, it smells like marijuana.
The Health Cannabis website does not call the business a “dispensary” for medical marijuana and related products.
“Health Cannabis Inc. is a Canadian company focused on improving the quality of life for those living with chronic and terminal illnesses through the use of medical marihuana [sic],” the website states.
Health Cannabis has two other locations, in Etobicoke and Newmarket, Ont.
