For today's weed news to go to the great province of British Columbia.
It's been 2 months since Canada legalized cannabis and B.C. is finally letting new brick-and-mortar dispensaries open up in the province. Until now they have only had one!
That's right, for the last eight weeks or so, the only legal place to buy cannabis in person in British Columbia was the one government-run weed store. But now, private companies are finally being allowed to enter the market.
Earlier this week, the provincial government of BC officially announced that a total of 4 private retail licenses have been awarded. Two of the new dispensaries will be in Kimberly, there will be one in the city of Pounce Coupe and an additional one will open up in Vancouver.
Although they will now be able to open, the road to getting a license to operate in B.C. was anything but easy for the private dispensaries.
"We went through all the stuff with the city for three years and now we spent the past four months going back and forth with the province and they were asking us every little detail about our lives... [But] We finally made it through," said Mike Babin's, the co-founder of the Evergreen Cannabis Society which will be the dispensary opening up in Vancouver.
But although going from just one, to now five weed stores in the province is a huge improvement, the province has a population of over 5 million people. I really don't think that that's going to be enough retail locations in long run.
Hopefully this will turn out to be just the beginning of the evolution of British Columbia's cannabis situation. I feel like as long as there is demand and money coming in, more and more stores will be allowed to open in time.
I guess all we can do is just waiting to see how this shit unfolds. But either way, at least there's some legal weed for y'all to smoke out there man.
And that's what's up and British Columbia.
