CAN: Cannabis greenhouse grower hoping government makes changes

It will be difficult for licensed cannabis producers to continue to operate unless the federal government allows changes to the Cannabis Act.

That’s what large-scale East Ladner greenhouse operation Boundary Bay Cannabis is again warning regarding the recently launched review of the act, hoping it may lead to improvements in potency and packaging restrictions, as well as reductions or the elimination of various tax regulations on cannabis products.

A partnership venture between Houweling Nurseries on 64th Street and Agra Ventures, Boundary Bay Cannabis, in a news release this week, noted its strategy continues to be the growing and selling of bulk cannabis on a wholesale basis to other licensed producers across Canada.

The greenhouse complex in Delta provides a strong opportunity to be as competitive as possible in the industry, the company says. “However, declining market prices; rising labor and energy expenses; and the ongoing high cost of maintaining regulatory compliance are making it difficult for licensed producers like BBC to operate unless Health Canada’s review of the Cannabis Act yields some significant and imminent improvements,” the grower stated.
