Legal Cannabis in British Columbia: What You Should Know

The good news: BC boasts the deepest, richest, and most knowledgable cannabis culture in Canada. More than 100 private store applications are under review, and by mid-2019 the industry here is going to be booming. The province is creating an industry with a mix of privately-owned stores and government-owned stores, in addition to an online ordering site.

The bad news: It’s going to be mid-2019 before things really get moving. Provincial authorities are expecting only one BC Cannabis Store to be open on Oct. 17, in the Columbia Place Shopping Centre in Kamloops.
