Medical marijuana dispensary in Ottawa granted permission for recreational sales


OTTAWA – A medical marijuana dispensary in Ottawa will be allowed to sell recreationally come January.
Pharmacann, aka Verilife on North Columbus Street was granted the approval at Tuesday night’s city council meeting. According to Mayor Dan Aussem, any medical marijuana dispensary that’s been in operation for over a year will be permitted use in a commercial district. Aussem says if the dispensary wants to move to a different location, it would be up to the planning commission to recommend so.
