As Canada’s federal government urges Canadians to stay at home to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of private-sector cannabis stores in the nation have long been barred by provinces from offering home cannabis delivery services to customers.
As of now, only cannabis retailers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba may offer full e-commerce.
That could be problematic for the nearly 700 privately owned recreational cannabis retailers in other provinces as demand shifts to e-commerce.
The economic fallout felt by those stores could be more acute the longer personal distancing measures are in place, business leaders told Marijuana Business Daily.
