City of North Vancouver Mulls Medical Marijuana Shops

The City of North Vancouver is mulling a business licence application from a resident who is strongly intent on opening the first medical marijuana dispensary in the community.

Weeds Glass and Gifts at 991 Marine Dr. had a “soft opening” in April, and now store co-owner Michael Wuest wants to provide medical marijuana to North Shore residents who he says are crossing the bridge to get prescription cannabis.

“Hopefully, we will be up and running soon — and not just to open and close, but to stay,” Wuest told the News on Monday.

As it stands, Weeds, which only sells pot paraphernalia at this point and not the drug itself, is operating in the city without a business licence because it’s part of a compassion club.

The Marine Drive location is one of a string of stores in the Weeds Glass and Gifts chain headquartered in Vancouver and which sells medical marijuana in its shops across the water.
