City of Victoria issues first business license for cannabis retailer
The City of Victoria has issued the first business license to store-front cannabis retailer, Farmacy, at 3055 Scott Street off Hillside near Shelbourne.
The City's cannabis regulations adopted in November 2016, require that operators have the appropriate zoning and meet operational requirements. The Scott Street location didn't require rezoning as the property is subject to an existing land use property which takes priority over the City's Zoning Bylaw. An inspection of the business confirms it is complying with the regulations.
The operational requirements which emphasize security and safety are posted on the City's website.
