"It's still an ongoing challenge," said Sraga, director of investigative services for the City of Toronto. "Dispensaries open, dispensaries close."

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 07:00:00 GMTThe Sault Star, 25 Oct 2016 - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a mandate to legalize pot. He ran on it in last year's election. But as Postmedia's just-completed, six-part series O Cannabis illustrates, it's one thing to promise legalization, another to deliver it. The biggest challenge facing the Liberals is how to regulate and tax the sale of marijuana- an estimated $7 billion-a-year underground business in Canada, that could increase to $10 billion to $20 billion with legalization.

It's less the vacuums themselves and more what is set to replace it - a branch of Cannaclinics, a medical-marijuana dispensary already operating in a number of locations in Vancouver and Toronto.
Sat, 22 Oct 2016 07:00:00 GMTGlobe and Mail, 22 Oct 2016 - Toronto officials maintain that there is no grey area when it comes to the legality of dispenseries On a warm fall day, the distinctive smell of dried cannabis buds wafts out to the sidewalk of a busy midtown Toronto street. WeeMedical on St. Clair Avenue will, at times, leave its front door open, providing a clear view for passers-by of what is for sale. Far from secretive, the retail operation is located just a few doors from a doughnut shop where it is not unusual to see a parked police car. It was one of the 43 dispensaries where Toronto police executed search warrants in late May of this year, yet it's business as usual now, open seven days a week.
