UPDATE: The medical cannabis farmers market scheduled to take place in Vancouver this Sunday has been canceled.
Event organizers at Medi Brothers Collective, a Vancouver-based medical marijuana delivery service, canceled the event Friday after the Red Lion Hotel Vancouver at the Quay pulled the event’s contract, said Mike Sutherland, director of Medi Brothers.
The Red Lion pulled the contract at the request of the city of Vancouver, Sutherland said.

A Vancouver-based medical marijuana delivery service is hosting a farmers market this weekend for patients who use medical cannabis.
The Cannabis Community Farmers Market will give medical marijuana users an opportunity to purchase cannabis, visit vendors and hear from guest speakers. The speakers will cover a variety of topics, including how new laws associated with the passage of Initiative 502, which will legalize recreational use of marijuana for adults, may affect medical cannabis users; cannabis smoking methods; and plant growing techniques and tips.
