Canada’s federal public safety ministry is working on a plan to thwart the country’s thriving online market for illegal cannabis, according to a recently-released briefing book for Public Safety Minister Bill Blair.
Any clampdown on unlicensed online dispensaries – whether successful or unsuccessful – could have implications for their regulated competitors.
A redacted version of the briefing book, dated Nov. 20, 2019, was made public on Wednesday. A section on cannabis-related law enforcement informs the minister of his priorities in that area.
“Just as the legal supply of recreational cannabis is becoming more firmly established, the internet has evolved into a distribution channel for the illicit sale of drugs,” says the briefing.
