Board of Variance votes in favour of BC Compassion Club Society to remain in its home

BoV SuccessVANCOUVER – A unanimous decision by the City of Vancouver’s Board of Variance (BOV) on April 20th means the BC Compassion Club Society (BCCCS) will not have to close its doors after providing important medicinal marijuana and holistic services for 18 years.

 “This decision comes as a great relief to our 6000 members who have been waiting, terrified for this day”, said Hilary Black, founder of the BCCCS. “The BOV understood that we are a safety net for patients falling through the cracks of the healthcare system. We have been taking care of our community 18 years. I am grateful the BOV chose to support us.”

“The heart of the issue is that we are near two schools, both of which have no opposition to our presence in the neighborhood, this is our home. Clearly the BOV has seen that we are not a threat to the public or the safety of children. Our Wellness Centre provides 3,400 health care appointments each year, and closing it would cause massive hardship on our patients.” 

The BC Compassion Club Society opened its doors in May of 1997. It provides medical cannabis as well as many holistic therapies through the Wellness Centre to a total of 6000 patients a year.

Unfair Tax Burdens Should be Removed

No other prescription medication is taxed, cannabis should be no different.
As you may know, the court of appeals just dismissed a tax case the BCCCS was supporting to clarify that patients should not be paying tax on medical cannabis. We have since had to start charging and remitting GST.
Please support the e-petition in Parliament asking that sales tax be removed from medical cannabis. We need your help to have an unfair tax burden removed from every single one of your purchases.
Our next step is to have the laws amended.
