A new compassion club offering medicinal marijuana has opened its doors in Montreal.
The Culture 420 Compassion Society set up shop on Park Avenue in Montreal's Mile-End district last week.
Organizers said their original location – in the southwest borough of Lachine – was overrun with customers.
"There are a lot of people travelling to the Lachine Compassion Centre, which was an issue," said centre spokesman Gary Webber. "We were struggling with the parking and overwhelming client base."
The organization went through proper municipal channels to open the new centre, and no one was opposed to the idea, said Webber.
