Magic mushroom dispensaries are facing legal challenges from the City of Vancouver, which is taking them to court and holding public hearings to take away their business licences.
Outspoken drug legalization advocate Dana Larsen was the first to raise the alarm publicly, and a lawyer working with several mushroom dispensaries in the city says multiple psilocybin-selling businesses are having the same troubles.
“I expect the result of this is going to be a couple years in court; meanwhile, more places will open,” Larsen said. “I don’t know if they’re going to be proactive like we hope.”
On Sep 26 Vancouver City Council is having a public hearing to decide about cancelling our Mushroom Dispensary business license at 247 W Broadway.
We need public support!
