More than 50 Marijuana Shops Flouting City’s Business Licence Scheme

City has issued 854 tickets to pot shop operators.

More than 50 illegal marijuana dispensaries continue to operate in Vancouver despite the city issuing 854 tickets to owners who refuse to close their doors, according to new statistics provided to the Courier this week.

The city has also filed 27 injunctions in court in an effort to shut down some of the 54 premises, which are operating without a business licence. The tickets are worth $250 each and, in some cases, were issued multiple times to a dispensary.

So far, operators have paid 205 tickets.
