We're one of the 50+ cannabis dispensaries on Vancouver Island (over 300 in Canada) that are not operating under the federally-approved medical marijuana system. To qualify under the federal system, you'll need to get a doctor's approval and Health Canada's permission to purchase from one of the 26 licensed producers. Many progressive City Councils and Police Departments across the country have allowed dispensaries to proliferate so people can safely access medicine, so long as there are no sales to minors or gang affiliations.
There are approximately 100+ mail order marijuana sites in Canada, many whom have been shipping cannabis products in the mail since the 90's and to date, we know of no-one who has ever been charged with receiving such products in the mail.
That being said, there is still a small amount risk on both ends as we are not working with any federal approval.
