Are the new Medical Marijuana Dispensary bylaws enforced by the City of Vancouver?

An open question is why are marijuana dispensaries continuing to open in Vancouver in locations not permitted under the new bylaws? Why are new stores opening at all without going through a permit process? The rules appear to be quite clear in banning dispensary operations on properties along Granville Street. Selective enforcement of bylaws or non-enforcement of bylaws does not set a good precedent by the City.
