Tamarack Cannabis Boutique is BC's first-ever privately-owned store to sell legal marijuana.

Tamarack made history last week when the BC Government officially approved it for a business license, becoming a first-of-its-kind in the province.

It had been operating as a medical dispensary in Marysville under the name Tamarack Dispensaries for a couple of years now, but was forced to put its operations on hold for a few weeks after cannabis was legalized on October 17.

The company says the reason for doing so is that they had to wait for their shipments of government-supplied cannabis to arrive.

Tamarack Cannabis Boutique has since announced their grand-opening will take place Friday, November 9 at 10:00 am.

"Look for Marijuana Man waving you in!" Writes the company.
