This man owns EMF off renwick and Braeburn. It is a dispensary and hope we can run them out of our community. Sketchy customers and they litter everywhere in the neighborhood!

How do they get away with this? Their terms of service are very interesting. “you may be required to show identification and/or your medical marijuana identification card or doctor's prescription upon request.” May? I thought that was required. They go on to say how marijuana is illegal. But you can just buy it directly from their website.

Channel 2 just did a story about how easy it is to get medical marijuana even if you don’t qualify.
