Ottawa Misinformed About Marijuana Dispensaries Says Vancouver Mayor

The Mayor of Vancouver says he is frustrated the federal government has dealt the cards, but not finished the game when it comes to regulating medical marijuana.

Gregor Robertson says Federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose is off base.

“She must be misinformed.”

She fired off a letter to the city saying Vancouver doesn’t have the authority to legitimize pot and it’s concerned with its proposal to regulate dispensaries.

“It is frustrating when there are comments made or letters from the federal government when this is the arena that they are responsible for setting policy on, and dealing with that the courts say, which people do have a right to access to their medicines, we are not seeing constructive steps coming out of Ottawa on this yet.”
