An unlicensed medical marijuana dispensary has opened and promptly closed in downtown Prince George.
Mayor Lyn Hall says he was not aware Canna Clinic was operating in the city’s industrial section downtown.
“My first reaction is surprise that there’s an operation like that in Prince George,” he said when contacted by CBC about the business.
“Of course you hear about the various operations throughout the province, throughout the country and now that we have one here in Prince George in our backyard, it’s something we have to deal with.”
When the business was contacted by phone the morning of Feb. 3, an employee said it was open.
Later the same day, the door to the building was locked and a person inside said they were not going to be open again for some time due to “problems.”
