Canada ‘weed’ stores run out of supplies, more lineups
Day two of legal recreational cannabis in Canada on Thursday saw more long lineups outside pot stores and supply shortages in parts of the country. Most consumers were exuberant about the end of prohibition, but a few expressed disappointment over not being able to buy cannabis on the first day. Others balked at the relatively high prices – ranging from Can$5.25 (US$4.02) in Quebec to Can$18.99 in Saskatchewan per gram – compared to the black market that saw average prices plunge in the last year to Can$6.79 per gram.
After waiting seven hours in line at a store in downtown Montreal on Wednesday, Alexandre, 30, said he was turned away at closing at 9 pm (0100 GMT). Police stepped in to disperse the crowd, without incident. “It was hell, it was cold,” Alexandre said. “But we had fun anyway, talking with people in the crowd and sharing joints.” He was back early Thursday morning to try again. “Yesterday was the day that everyone was waiting for but I think that little by little the queue will decrease,” he said.
In Ontario, Canada’s most populated province, 38,000 orders for weed worth about Can$750,000 were processed in the first few hours Wednesday (total figures for the day were not yet available), while in neighboring Quebec 42,000 orders were processed in-store and online, smashing all expectations. “This volume of orders far exceeds the forecasts of the SQDC,” the Quebec government pot retailer said. It said it was “difficult to anticipate the volume of sales … given the lack of data from a sector that 48 hours ago was still illegal.”
