Marijuana Activists Protest Dispensary Regulations Outside Vancouver City Hall

‘We’re protesting the bad side of the regulations,’ says Neil Magnuson

The City of Vancouver hosted its second of three information sessions on Monday for marijuana dispensaries that will be licensed under new rules.

But outside the event at city hall, a group of marijuana activists angry over the new regulations held a protest.

Robert Moore, one of the protesters, says the city’s high permit cost of $30,000 will force the closure of dozens of dispensaries that have been open for years.

“We think that that’s not fair for equal rights for cannabis users. That’s not equal when the pharmacies are being charged just a couple hundred dollars,” he said.
