Written by Paul Palmeter for CBC NewsThe Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has backed the Halifax Regional Municipality in the denial of a business occupancy permit to a registered Cole Harbour company that runs a medical marijuana dispensary.
The 28-page report said Tasty Budd’s is not legal. “The board finds that the appellant’s business of the sale of medical marijuana, even to patients qualified to buy it, is currently illegal under the applicable federal legislation,” the decision read.
Tasty Budd’s was denied the permit in February and that triggered an appeal by the company’s owner.
The latest decision means they will appeal again.
