I live in a medical cannabis state in the US and would like to tag dispensaries in my area. However, the only reference I can find is for shop=cannabis, which the wiki explicitly states is inappropriate for medical facilities. I could use amenity=pharmacy, but as these facilities only dispense cannabis products, this seems inappropriate as well. Is there any generally accepted feature for this?

There is currently no special tag to differentiate between shops selling recreational cannabis and those that sell only medically prescribed cannabis.

As for the Wiki, I wouldn't let its pronouncements restrict my use of the shop=cannabis key. If we can come up with a suitable new tag to make it possible to include medical only shops, that would be my favored way forward. This is a good question for the tagging list to kick around.

Perhaps

cannabis:medical=yes/only

or something similar?

The tag cannabis:medical=yes is already in use. In the case of a dispensary selling only medical cannabis, I would modify that tag:

cannabis:medical=only

cannabis:recreational=no (optionally)

At some point, someone will have to edit the shop=cannabis page to allow for this tagging scenario.

How about editing it now? :)
