I don’t normally blog about an individual pot shop. However I make an exception when some shop like Farmacy Victoria starts spreading its lies on social media. Accordingly, here is a recent tweet from Farmacy Victoria. “We are no Shady Dispensary and our Doctors are professionals.” It is absolutely correct about one thing. It is not “shady”. It is far worse than shady. Farmacy Victoria is a full on criminal enterprise.
From the deceptive pun in its name to its high end interior atmosphere, the owners of Farmacy Victoria have created a slick image, but do not be fooled
It is owned by criminals. Moreover, it is run by criminals and supplied by criminals. And any money spent there is funding biker gangs and/or other criminals to commit more crimes.
Do you remember this part of the quote? “Our Doctors are professionals.” It’s another lie. It has no doctors
The quote implies that there are multiple doctors on staff or on site. The truth is there are no staff doctors or doctors available on site. They use every trick in the book including flat out lies.
There is a nurse in a separate building within the same parking lot. Laughably, Farmacy Victoria refers to that building as its “Clinic”.
It doesn’t just lie about doctors though. According to comments on Reddit, these criminals also run a 30 second Skype script scam. They use every trick in the book in addition to their flat out lies.
Moreover, its web site also has a section titled “Cannabis 101” about the medicinal qualities of pot. It is full of self serving misinformation.
Anyhow, back to the doctors. When I called I was told the following sign up process, including the medical exam, takes less than 10 minutes. Therefore, it must be one heck of a thorough medical exam
First you go to the clinic and see the nurse. She/he has you fill out a membership application. Then the nurse questions you about why you think you need to use pot. Your membership will then be approved and you can buy marijuana.
What pot can you buy after approval?
If the ten minute medical exam by a so called “nurse” and the lies about a doctor didn’t tip you off that this is a sham, their menu of available marijuana products should. You can buy just about anything you can imagine.
As of this post, Farmacy Victoria lists 36 different varieties of weed, not including edibles or other forms. But out of those 36, only one makes reference to a CBD level.
CBD is the active ingredient in weed that has the medicinal affects. Therefore, without ample CBD levels there is no medical benefit.
While Farmacy Victoria has only one weed for which it lists any CBD level, it has two different varieties of hashish. Hashish is a concentrated derivative of pot. Its only use is to get a person high.
Additionally, Farmacy Victoria sells seven different varieties of “shatter”. Shatter has a THC level 5 to 6 times higher than normal BC bud. There is nothing medical about shatter. In fact, it is so potent that it often causes psychotic breaks in its users.
Our kids cannot help but to notice Farmacy Victoria
The shop is at the intersection of Hillside Avenue and Scott Road. This is exactly across the street from the main entrance to Hillside Mall. It is also clearly visible from the McDonalds restaurant parking lot and the Dairy Queen parking lot. Additionally, each are within metres of it. Kids frequent all three of these places.
These guys obviously think they are above the law. The RCMP and the Victoria Police Department should show them that they are not
Due to its location, it falls within the jurisdiction of the VicPD. Also, it is subject to action by the RCMP because it is in violation of federal laws.
Busting Farmacy Victoria would lead to a treasure trove of other criminals. This operation was not set up on a shoestring budget. Accordingly, the reach and depth of the organizations which supply, manage and/or own it is obviously vast.
Farmacy Victoria is also a perfect target for Civil Forfeiture
- It is well financed
- It operates in a manner meant to deceive the public
- The property it is on is worth a lot of money
- It is part of a sophisticated criminal organization, from grow ops to retail
- The business tries to position itself as a private club by making buyers become members, but it is really a retail business selling mostly recreational pot while pretending it is a medical facility
- It is openly violating federal law
Farmacy Victoria has brought violence before in the form of an armed robbery. Unless it is shut down, it will be a centerpiece in the coming fight to control the pot trade in Victoria
If Lisa Helps gets her way, soon the City of Victoria will be licensing criminal enterprises like Farmacy Victoria. [UPDATE 08/05/17: The city is now licensing pot shops and criminals to commit a federal crime. Thus, the City of Victoria is now officially part of a criminal enterprise]
The city knows it will be licensing criminals to commit crimes. Just read the warning sign if you don’t believe me. It is a quote from the city.
It’s absolutely clear. If our elected officials proceed with their stated plans, they will be licensing criminals to run criminal enterprises.
Readers, you have the power to protect Victoria. It is time to do so. ELECTIONS ARE COMING SOON!
If you are in favor of medical marijuana, please realize that the City of Victoria is destroying its credibility within the medical community by allowing regular pot to masquerade as medicinal pot.
It time to protect Victoria. It is time to take our city back.
