A recent warning from the RCMP to Vernon area marijuana dispensaries has led to rotating closures by the shops.

Speaking for the five dispensaries, Imre Kovacs of The Herbal-Health Centre, says they're not operating illegally, but will take action.

 "Today, two of the facilities are closed, tomorrow other facilities will be closed. The next day, still other facilities will be closed. So, on a rotating basis, we'll take turns closing."

Kovacs says they don't know yet how long this action will continue.

The dispensaries are also calling for a moratorium on further RCMP intervention until the  new Liberal government formalizes its plans on legalization of marijuana.
