These are the first Canadians to buy legal weed

Provinces had raised worries about the prospect of early supply shortages in the weeks preceding legalization. "Retailers in Manitoba will be receiving staggered shipments over the next few weeks (some daily) in an effort to meet their requests", said a spokeswoman for the Manitoba crown corporation in an email.

"I do not usually smoke but since it was a historic day for Canada I thought I'd try", she told AFP. But provinces and businesses have struggled to prepare, and legalization was pushed back from a July start to enable setting up distribution and sales networks. The country plans to pardon individuals who were convicted of crimes that would now have been perfectly legal, such as the possession and cultivation of cannabis.

After it went live at midnight, Farnworth says the system recorded about 1,000 sales in the first hour. In Prince Edward Island, total sales on the first day was more than $152,000 after tax, almost $21,000 of which was online.

Shoppers will have the ability to choose from various strains and have their order filled out by a store clerk, being able to choose between dried buds, ground cannabis, pre-rolled joints, cannabis oil, pills, or oral spray.

The site initially promised to deliver products within three days but a message now alerts customers that their orders could take up to five days to be delivered. "We believe this is the first step toward the establishment of cannabis as a key functional ingredient touching multiple consumer categories".

After surveying 100 customers, Landry and his team found that customers on average bought $80 to $90 worth of cannabis, with variations between provinces.

Dawkins said he doesn't need to hypothesize about what will happen to the black market in Canada. The Federal government told TIME Magazine that it will be on the lookout for "pot tourists" bringing marijuana from Canada, where it's legal, over the border into the United States (where it's mostly not).

He said part of the delay in opening stores was due to the provincial pledge that local governments will make the final decision about the types of stores - whether public or private - as well as locations and the number of retail cannabis outlets that will be allowed in their communities.

A spokeswoman for the immigration authority said she was released from the holding facility on Thursday evening. In March 2017, Israel's parliament passed a law banning the entry of supporters of the BDS movement.

Still, the country-wide supply crunch continued to make it hard for cannabis retailers to meet existing demand.

"Municipalities will have a one-time window to opt-out of permitting cannabis retail stores within their municipal boundaries and they can enact by-laws that further restrict smoking cannabis beyond the provincial minimum standards in places like parks".

In the wake of the legalization, the bottom has fallen out of the market, temporarily at least, as some of the largest marijuana producers by market capitalization Canopy Growth, Tilray, Cronos, and Aurora Cannabis were trading down between four and nine percent, Markets Insider reports.

Before hearing of this border policy, McLean said she travelled to the United States frequently, but at this point it is too risky. By mid-afternoon some products were sold out.

Corey Stone and a friend got to one of the 12 stores that opened in Quebec at 3:45 be among the first to buy pot.

In neighbouring U.S., nine states and the District of Columbia have legalised marijuana. The new law allows for recreational use.

"Kamloops just seemed to be the right place at the right time, where they had the zoning in place, they had a store location that was flawless for what we wanted to do", he said.
