Ontario to sell cannabis at government-run stores, online
Ontario is planning to open dozens of government-run stores across the province to sell cannabis and will allow for the drug’s online sale after the federal government legalizes its recreational use. The Globe and Mail has learned through industry and government sources that Ontario’s Liberal government will allow the sale of marijuana at 40 storefronts across the province that will be run by a government-owned entity that will also control online sales, however more retail locations will be added over time. The areas where the stores will be located haven’t been determined yet, but will be finalized after municipalities are consulted. Ontario will be the first province to outline how it plans to tackle the contentious issue of distribution.
