B.C. City to Pot Shop Owners: Want to Open Here? Great, Open your Wallet First


Business is booming at cannabis shops around B.C. in anticipation of the day that they can finally sell their products legally.

“We’ve been begging to be legitimized for years,” said Owen Smith of Leaf Compassion, a cannabis dispensary business with locations across Vancouver Island.

But running a legitimate business could come at a price for anyone who wants to start up a pot shop in the City of Langford, about 15 kilometres from Victoria.
