I agree with all of your points.

Reiterating a bit: Using the cannabis:*.* tag to designate a place where
one can buy cannabis, be it a pharmacy or a shop=cannabis, or be it for
recreational or medical use, will go a long way toward making this scenario
both understandable and logical.

I wouldn't like using shop=cannabis with amenity=pharmacy on the same
object. No way. There would also be an ugly "tag collision" with
shop=chemist (whatever that is, LOL). IMO, it would be best to use the tag
of cannabis:medical=only for such dispensaries.
