When the government of Saskatchewan selected 51 REC retail license-lottery winners last year, it gave them a caveat: they had to complete their license application within a year. With just over a month to go, 16 stores have yet to open.
- The issue is largely bureaucratic. The Saskatchewan Lottery and Gaming Authority is in the process of screening applicants, many of whom worry the delay will cost them their chance to open a REC store.
- Those who were runners-up in last year’s lottery may yet get their chance to apply for REC retail licenses.
- Chris “Equity Guru” Perry wrote an entertaining and profane rant about the difficulty of accessing legal cannabis in BC, “literally the worst system in Canada.”
- New Brunswickers are enthusiastic about learning to grow cannabis at home, even if they’re not buying many seeds from Cannabis NB.
