It was a sad week that just passed as Charlotte Figi, who inspired a medical cannabis movement, died at the age of 13.
More locally, the Ontario retail cannabis picture took an unexpected turn – as cannabis retail was taken off the non-essential list, re-placed on the essential list – and allowed for curb-side pick up and delivery. More on this all week.
Charlotte Figi, the Colorado girl who sparked a medical cannabis movement died last week. Drawing outpouring of condolences throughout the cannabis and media world, including CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta
Ontario’s cannabis retail roller coaster continued in the past week. First, cannabis retail was on the essential list. Two weeks later, they were taken off. Three days later, last Tuesday, they were put back on the list – this time with online payment, click + collect, curbside pick-up and delivery. Also, 900 Retail Operator Licenses have been received by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. MJ Biz has the details.
While essential in Ontario, not essential in Massachusetts. In fact, 4 cannabis companies are suing the state there for being left out of essential.
More (temporary) layoffs, in the sector. This time in Moncton, New Brunswick. 400 temporary layoffs.
Stay safe out there – and join us for Cannabis + Technology | Retail Tech presented by LeafLink.
