Press Release: CAMCD Congratulates Vancouver On Vote

Looks forward to public hearing

Vancouver, BC, April 28, 2015– Today, the Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries praised Councils 10-1 vote that moved the proposed dispensary regulations to a public hearing. “We’d like to congratulate the City of Vancouver for making this historic and necessary move,” said Jamie Shaw, the group’s President. “We understand the difficulties in trying to strike a balance between all of the various stakeholders and the needs of patients.”

“Vancouver has been a world leader in drug policy and harm reduction strategies for decades, and despite major obstacles, this is another bold step in reaffirming the principles laid out in its Four-Pillar policy”, Shaw said, “we’d like to offer our support in the coming months as we try to make these regulations work for patients, dispensaries, health authorities, and the residents of this great city.”

CAMCD looks forward to including these proposed regulations at our “Setting Roots” Networking Event on April 30, 2015 in Vancouver.

CAMCD is a non-profit trade association for medical cannabis dispensaries founded in 2011. Their Dispensary Certification Program is a rigorous accreditation program developed in part with the support of the UBC SEED Project, and funded by a Peter Wall Solutions Initiative.
