Since Marijuana is Legalized in Canada, Marijuana Retailers Start to Lack of Supply

Marijuana retailers in the Canada country began to lack supply since first-day marijuana was legalized in the country 1 month ago. In the first days of legalization, James Burns believed his company has enough products on its store shelves. However, currently, he has staff who monitor the first hours to get scarce supplies from the government and are considering limiting store opening hours. Some other retailers is Namaste which now is available for you.

Thomas Clarke from Newfoundland is one of first retailers that selling drugs legally in the Canada at midnight on October 17. He said he sold the day and ran out of the stock for almost a week. Since then, Clarke was able for getting products for his shop but said he could not order what he needed from provincial suppliers. Suppliers determine the quantity, quantity, and products that Clarke can get.

There is even a shop that is only open on Thursday to Sunday due to supply problems. In a statement, provincial agency who responsible for the cannabis sales said that the buyer only received 20 percent to 30 percent of their original orders. But now, the marijuana can be ordered in

A report released on first days of October that current supply will be around 30 percent to 60 percent of the total demand in first months of legalization.

However, people in industry said scarcity was worse than they expected. The Angus Reid Institute, a nonprofit research foundation, released a poll showing that one in eight Canadians has used marijuana since legalization. Health Canada said the discussion of reports on product shortages must be discussed in two aspects, namely for the patient and industry groups.

He expects the seller to be licensed to take steps to ensure the people who registered patients have access to products needed for the medical purposes. Health Canada said producers had shipped around 15.000 kg of dried marijuana and 370 liters of marijuana oil to this date. Producers also have an inventory of more than 90,000 kg of dry products and 41,000 liters of oil reported.

One of the largest producers in Canada, told the media that they had faced the supply chain problems coming out of stock. He said the company faced a delay in getting an excise tax stamp and a change in labeling requirements at the last minute which also became another hurdle. There are also other requests that are bigger than expected.

However, he also said that they were waiting in Health Canada for the various agreements that would enable them for moving faster, and be more efficient. He hopes the problem can be resolved by early 2019.
