Marijuana dispensary rules needed in Saskatoon, advocate says

The founder of a Saskatoon-based compassion club hopes to bend the ear of city council to get them to look at medical marijuana dispensary regulations.

Mark Hauk submitted a letter to Saskatoon city council requesting to speak at their Aug. 20 meeting to try and get officials to see marijuana as medicine rather than a street drug.

What I'd like to ask of city council is that they consider implementing medical marijuana dispensary regulations similar to what Vancouver and Victoria have recently done,€ Hauk told News Talk Radio.

Hauk said it'€™s important local governments tackle the issue of regulating dispensaries before they start popping up haphazardly all over the city.

He said the main concern people have with community-based medical marijuana dispensaries are their proximity to schools and children, and the involvement of organized crime.

Following what Vancouver and Victoria have done, Hauk said Saskatoon can introduce similar regulations.
