RCMP raid two pot shops, seize product and issue tickets on Vancouver Island

RCMP raid two pot shops, seize product and issue tickets on Vancouver IslandThe managers of two pot shops on Vancouver Island where police seized thousands of dollars worth of marijuana say the British Columbia government failed them by only approving one store in the province before legalization as raids were reported on both ends of the country. The RCMP say they entered the Port Alberni Cannabis Club at around 11 a.m. Wednesday, before visiting Leaf Compassion Cannabis Dispensary around 2 p.m., and found both stores were open without provincial licences. Police gave the store no warning in the weeks or days before the raid, said general manager Christine Jarvis, and she blamed the province for not approving her licence application in time for legalization on Wednesday.

Cannabis retailers, governments warn of lingering supply shortage

Cannabis retailers, governments warn of lingering supply shortageDemand for newly legal pot appears to be outstripping supply on the second day of legalization as retailers ran low on some products or were cleaned out completely, manifestations of a shortfall that some provinces warned could last for months. "Every province — not just Manitoba — is receiving substantially less cannabis than originally requested...  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.
