After a long hiatus, we are potentially preparing the return of the Sunshine Coast Compassion Club Society (SCCCS). With what is happening in today’s world and Canada’s government we think that major steps have been taken towards responsible use and responsible enforcing of medical cannabis use. With the number of dispensaries popping up around BC and Canada, we are considering that the time has come to revive the SCCCS to provide quality, affordable medicine to those who need it.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the SCCCS then please let us know. We are looking to gauge interest in the Sunshine Coast community before committing to the long road ahead of us in terms of getting back and running.
One of the biggest hurdles will undoubtedly be getting back in the good books of local RCMP. For whatever reason, the SCCCS now has an associated negative stigma attached with the society. This is of course ridiculous, as we were simply a group of individuals that had an opportunity to receive cannabis, for legitimate medical purposes, rather than from the streets like recreational drug users.
Another hurdle will be finding an appropriate space to set up shop, and the journey of paperwork that is to follow. We have a few places in mind, and are working with a local realtor to find a building that is central and secure, so that members may come and go while feeling safe and at home. If you know of any places that may be suitable for the SCCCS to inhabit, then please let us know.
We haven’t yet decided what the specifics behind memberships will be at this point. Previous members will be offered an exclusive discounted membership fee. However new memberships will still be affordable, hopefully somewhere around $20-30 per year. Unfortunately at this time we do not think it will be possible to provide mail-order services like before, but we will certainly look into it.
If you are interested in helping out with any of the processes to getting the SCCCS back up and running, we are actively looking for volunteers to help out with all stages. What you can expect for the next few months is for us to actively update our blog on all news related to medical cannabis, and if any progress is made we will try and update as well. If you are interested in being a contributor to the blog, please let us know as well.
Here’s to new beginnings!
