BC Cannabis Stores website up and running

NEW First Legal Recreational Cannabis in Canada Sold in NL

Canada has become the second country after Uruguay to legalise possession and use of recreational cannabis. The goal is to better reflect society's changing opinion about marijuana and bring black market operators into a regulated system.

While Trudeau cast the bill in a public health lens, in order to make marijuana more hard for teenagers to access and erode black market profits, the global financial community is eagerly looking at Canada to see how legalization plays out.

Weed enthusiasts in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada's easternmost province, kicked off the first permissible sales at midnight.

"I am living my dream. Teenage Tom Clarke is loving what I am doing with my life right now", said Tom Clarke, 43, whose shop in Newfoundland began business as soon as legally possible.

A senior government official earlier told The Associated Press that those convicted of possessing of 30 grams or less of marijuana would be eligible for a pardon.

Doors to the shop opened at 10:00 a.m. today, October 17, after the much anticipated legal cannabis legislation came into effect.

Ontario, home to Canada's most populous city, Toronto, will have no stores until April 2019 due to a change in the province's retail model by a new provincial government. Over 100 people braved the cold and wind in the province's capital St. John's, lining up outside a Tweed-branded store owned by Canopy Growth Corp., the world's most recognised cannabis producer. The vast majority of drug cases are handled by federal prosecutors, who could decide, in the public interest, not to prosecute, they said.

Shoppers visiting the Moncton Cannabis NB store for the first time speak about the first day of legal marijuana.

People in Canada are cheering, enduring long lines and honking their auto horns in support as the country's first marijuana dispensaries open their doors Wednesday.

Legalizing cannabis is expected to create an industry worth more than $4 billion for Canada.

Some provinces may opt to set the age limit at 19. In Colorado, for instance, dried flower use made up 47 percent of last year's fourth-quarter sales, with demand for edibles and concentrates growing especially fast.

Members of the media attend a preview for one of Quebec's new cannabis stores in Montreal, Tuesday, Oct.1 6, 2018.

A driver honked jubilantly at people lined up outside of downtown Montreal's new government-run cannabis store. "So it's about an education project on the Canadian side to make sure that we weed out - no pun intended - all those accidental problems", Masse said.

Inside the store, he said Cannabis NB employees knew what they were talking about and there was a lot of variety. She hopes to make money from pipes, bongs and marijuana paraphernalia.

By 12:50 a.m., however, there was no one left waiting in the queue, she said. "You got to sell $250,000 worth of product in order to make $20,000".
