The City of Kimberley is now home to British Columbia’s first Non-Medical Cannabis Private Retail Store.
BC’s Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch has issued a license to Tamarack Cannabis Boutique which goes into effect November 1st.
At this time, 255 paid applications are under the review of the province, with 44 forwarded to local governments that are ready to consider non-medical cannabis retail stores.
Kimberley Council gave their unanimous support to Tamarack and Earth’s Own Naturals before the municipal election, allowing Tamarack to become the first private pot shop licensed in the province.
Under its previous name, Tamarack Cannabis Boutique was the first medical dispensary in the country to receive a business license from its municipality.
