If they were up to anything illegal, then National Access Cannabis Winnipeg sure picked a conspicuous spot to do it.
The city’s newest medical marijuana clinic, at 101-379 Broadway, is situated close to the provincial courthouse and around the corner from the traffic division.
“We see all sorts of various police and law enforcement come by. Sheriffs from the courthouse,” manager Devin Sprague said during an interview Thursday. “I’ve always wondered what their opinion is, whether good or bad.”
Sprague is a proponent of the plant as a medicine, and of getting it into the hands of patients through legal means.
The company takes pains to note that it follows Health Canada regulations and works only with licensed producers, including Manitoba’s Delta 9 Bio-tech (which has plans for a clinic of its own in Osborne Village, next door to the former Kustom Kulture location).
They’ve even invited Winnipeg Police and the RCMP, along with media, to the grand opening on Friday. They’ve been open to the public for three weeks.
