Cloud Nine dispensary on Fort Street is one of a handful of cannabis retailers that have successfully completed rezoning with the City of Victoria and is in the process of being granted a business licence. It is in the minority of the 35 or so shops operating in the city, which have been subject to a separate city bylaw since September 2016. A staff report to be discussed by city councillors this week indicates that cannabis-related operations have been fined a total of $24,000 for non-compliance, with the majority of tickets issued for operating without a business licence.
