FIRST SASKATOON MARIJUANA STORE ONLY SELLS ONE ITEM PER CUSTOMER
- November 28, 2018
Considering how complex the marijuana industry can be at times, you may understand why people are cautious about allowing great masses of people into their dispensaries. After all, the little green plant is still 100% illegal by federal law, and states have established a variety of tricky laws to make sure the public is safe. So, to keep up with this standard in Canada, one city in Saskatchewan is setting strict guidelines for its consumer network. Ultimately, anyone who visits the Pot Shack in Saskatoon (Saskatchewan’s largest city) will only be allowed to purchase one item, no exceptions. However, Geoff Con (co-owner of the store) explained that the Pot Shack will not be limiting the number of grams that can be served to a customer. So why have they taken this action? Let’s take a closer look and find out what Canada is up to now.
We’re Out of Pot!
Ultimately, the goal of any business owner is to keep the customer happy and satisfied, so a shortage of goods would definitely not be a good way to start. Conn explained that the opening day of the Pot Shack was soft and emphasized how the marijuana limit was established to avoid a shortage. According to the co-owner, if they had not taken this action, the store would’ve been out of cannabis in a day.
First Nation Neighbors
Needless to say, Pot Shack has opened up during a testy time for Saskatchewan. Recently, the Muscowpetung Saulteaux First Nation opened a dispensary that was unlicensed, exercising its rights under the Sovereign Law (which permits different rules for marijuana than the rest of Canada). However, the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority, the marijuana governing body, has warned the First Nation that Canadian federal laws will still be enforced on the Muscowpetung reservation.
Questions in Quebec
Meanwhile, Quebec has been suffering from a shortage of pot, for real. Once the little green plant was legalized last month, dispensaries have been forced to close for three days each week to ensure their shelves carry substantial quantities of pot products. Andrea Paine (national director of government relations for Aurora Cannabis) was not surprised in the least. After all, the marijuana plant will not speed up for the public.
