CANNABIS CULTURE – The Vancouver Cannabis Dispensary is ready for the Olympics, planning for their second location and selling medicine across Canada by mail-order.

Like many local businesses in the Olympic city, Vancouver’s Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary at 880 East Hastings is gearing up for extra volume during the looming influx of tourists.

“With the Olympics coming we expect to be getting more business from tourists with medical cannabis needs,” said Dana Larsen, a director of the non-profit society which operates the Dispensary. “As long as they have a verifiable proof of diagnosis or state-issued medical cannabis card, we can help meet their medicinal needs.”

However, Larsen added that it’s best to prepare in advance. “Sometimes it can take a day or two to get a membership confirmed, especially with non-residents. We encourage people to contact us first if they are interested in using our services during their stay.”

Larsen also recommended faxing documents instead of bringing them across the border. “Sometimes customs agents will harass or even forbid entry to Americans who have a medical cannabis card on them,” he warned.

The Dispensary is now celebrating fifteen months of business and has about 1300 registered members.

“We have never had a single problem with Vancouver Police,” said Larsen. “In all of our dealings with police they have been friendly and professional, and have never threatened us or been anything but co-operative.”

“A few months ago we launched a mail-order service to provide our products across the country,” explained Larsen. “Any Canadian with a valid medicinal need can easily register with us to receive their medicine discreetly in the post.”

The extensive list of products available from the Dispensary is enough to make any cannabis connoisseur drool.

“Our daily menu varies, but we usually have at least 15 strains of cannabis, 10 varieties of hash and kif, plus budder, oils, extracts, tinctures, elixirs and a wide range of edibles. All of these products are available by mail-order and from our retail outlet.”

“We’re hoping to open a second outlet in the summer,” concluded Larsen. “We’re scouting around for a suitable location and we’re all very excited about the potential for growth and expansion in the Canadian medical cannabis scene.

“Cannabis is the medicine of the future, and we are proud to be providing high-quality products to patients in Vancouver, and across the country.”

    William Wallace Denslow’s illustration of the poem “The Queen of Hearts” from a 1901 issue of Mother Goose. The poem was originally published in 1782 as part of a set of four playing card based poems, but proved to be far more popular than the others. By 1785 it had been set to music, and it forms the basis of the plot of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Chapter XI: “Who Stole the Tarts?” Although it was originally published in a magazine for adults, it is now best known as a nursery rhyme.

    In light of the recent progress made in medical Cannabis sales in the US, it’s time for the Dispensary to move into a new phase, the phase where all they need is for prospective members to fill in an online form stating that they assume full responsibility for being in compliance with Health Canada regulations because the Dispensary accepts no liability. 18 or older only. Leave this site now if you don’t want to get stoned, er, I mean healthy.

    Not bad for prohibition pricing. I can hardly wait for Cannabis to be legal for everyone. So the price can drop.
    But until that happens, I guess we will have to suffer 🙁

    Any members caught reselling their medicine get immediately banned. Reselling is against the rules!

    Good menu and reasonable prices. Where can I find a member to “facilitate” my order, for a 10% handling fee? Hey, sick people gotta make a buck too you know. How else are they going to pay for their supply? Disability doesn’t pay much.

    The Olympic torch was confronted by Secwepemc and their supporters in the
    Secwepemc Nation, in the invader (settler) town of Chase, so-called
    british kkkolumbia, KKKanada. With the message “Secwepemc Say No
    Olympics” and “Olympic Torch Not Welcome in Secwepemc Nation”

    Secwepemc have a long standing fight with the government of KKKanada and
    british kkkolumbia because of the fight for Secwepemc Land and Freedom.
    Secwepemc have never signed treaties or they have never ceded or
    surrendered their Secwepemc Nation. Secwepemc say NO to the BC treaty
    process, the modern day treaty wants get rid of the Native Peoples and
    take control of the last remaining lands and water (so-called resources)
    from their Territory.

    Historic Dispute with Olympics
    Secwepemc Land and Freedom Fighters travelled to Europe in 2002 to hand
    deliver a formal submission to the International Olympic Committee and let
    the IOC and the World know that the Olympics is not welcome here in so-
    called KKKanada, because of the long standing Indigenous land dispute and
    continued violations of Indigenous and Human Rights. KKKanada does not
    permission to be here and is currently illegally occupying Indigenous

    Where ever the Olympics sets foot they wage war on the Earth and the
    Indigenous Peoples. No Olympics On Native Land.

    Native Youth Movement Says:
    The Olympics and KKKanada is using it's global spotlight to market our
    Indigenous Territories for sale, but we want the World to know “OUR LANDS
    ARE NOT FOR SALE.” KKKanada is here illegally and “This is all Native
    Land”. This is simply not just another “issue”, We are fighting for our
    Freedom to continue to exist and live as true Secwepemc on our Lands
    without any foreign invader occupation on our Lands. Major corporate
    sponsors like Coca-cola and RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) are destroying
    Indigenous Territories all over the World, including the Tar Sands (the
    destructive project in the history of humanity). We are now in the IV
    World War, the war against the Earth itself.

    We stand in solidarity with all Indigenous Peoples fighting for their
    Lands and Freedom Worldwide.

    Defend the Earth. No Olympics on Native Land. No Trans Canada Hwy
    expansion through Secwepemc Nation. No CP Rail expansion through
    Secwepemc Nation.
    Shut Down the Tar Sands. Solidarity with the Zapatista. Solidarity with
    the Mapuche. Get the Shell Out of Sacred Headwaters -Tahltan Nation.
