At its May 19 meeting, the Community Alliance of Mission Hill (CAMH) rejected a proposed cannabis dispensary on Terrace St. Roughly 33 members of the public attended the meeting.
Raices on the Hill at 123 Terrace Street originally appeared before CAMH in 2019. It aims to set itself apart from other dispensaries by paying a liveable wage, hiring those who have been impacted by the “war on drugs”, and investing 10 percent of its profits into the local community.
“We want this to be a great place to work,” said presenter Jeffrey Sanchez.
