Vancouver police are hoping that by releasing the surveillance video from a violent robbery at a cannabis dispensary in November, they may get some tips from the public. The case highlights the unusual relationship between police and the semi-legal dispensaries on the eve of cannabis legalization in Canada. Jason Doucette holds a photo of the suspect in a cannabis dispensary robbery. But Briere said in the case of the robbery from his Main Steet store, police returned the cannabis. In 2016 and 2017, there were four reported robberies at Vancouver dispensaries, 42 cases of break and enter and eight cases of theft.
