Vernon Dispensaries Have Closed Depriving Medically Approved Patients of Reasonable Access to Medicine
VERNON, B.C., Dec. 7, 2015 /CNW/ - The Herbal-Health Centre, a leading medical cannabis dispensary in Vernon is calling for a moratorium on any further RCMP intervention in the fledgling industry until the new Liberal government formalizes its plans for the legalization of the product. Imre Kovacs, who represents a coalition of dispensaries in Vernon, says RCMP action at various dispensaries around B.C. including one that he is involved in, make it clear there is much confusion surrounding the anticipated legalization of cannabis and the sensible thing to do would be to maintain the status quo until such time as the government acts upon and changes the legislation and regulation of cannabis.
Kovacs says that the facilities are responding to police warnings by shutting down retail operations "Vernon dispensaries will have no product on site and will not be conducting retail sales. We will implement an open-house policy and staff will be on hand to answer questions and concerns from patients about accessing their medicine."
