Vancouver, the first Canadian city to have legal dispensaries.
Pot dispensaries are popping up all over Canada, with the majority sprouting in Vancouver, as everyone in the industry anticipates the legalization of recreational weed in the spring of 2017. This being said, 99% of dispensaries currently operating in Canada are still considered to be illegal businesses.
In 2016, Vancouver received a few legal recreational dispensaries. The very first of their kind in Canada. These dispensaries operate under legal business licenses and have been granted proper authorization by the provincial government to operate as a recreational dispensary.
