  • Though the compassion club has been in operation since the late 1990s, the province rejected VCBC’s demand for exemption on the basis that “it is illegal to sell cannabis that was not produced by a producer licensed by Health Canada.”

Shaw acknowledged the 10mg THC cap on edibles left them unsuitable for medical use and suggested “ingestible extracts […] may therefore be a better fit.”

  • In response to VCBC’s call for affordable MED for low-income populations, Shaw noted, “you may be interested to know that prices for legal cannabis products are trending down.” VCBC Founder Ted Smith vowed to keep fighting.
