A medical marijuana clinic is moving into the former constituency office of one of Canada’s most vocal anti-pot politicians.
Canadian Cannabis Clinics will open its first Edmonton location on Oct. 5 at 6801 170 St., the former office of Conservative MP Rona Ambrose.
The company’s chief corporate officer, Ronan Levy, said he was initially unaware of the location’s history when it was selected, but was pleased by the irony when he found out.
“We quite enjoyed the relevance, and how emblematic it is of changing times these days,” Levy said.
“Our reputation in the medical community is of utmost importance, so we didn’t do this as a subtle jab at conservative government. We don’t play into the politics of cannabis at all.
“It really just was a very happy, kind of pleasant, funny surprise to realize that our clinic was in this location.”
