Brick and Mortar stores delayed until April 2019
"As Canada heads towards October 17th and the legalization of cannabis, many Canadians are feeling unprepared and out of the loop. Ontario will not have any brick and mortar stores until April 2019, and new legislation on a private distribution scheme still working its way through the Ontario legislature", says Peter Thurley consultant for the burgeoning cannabis industry.
As a Kitchener-based medical cannabis advocate, Peter Thurley has had a front-row seat on one of the most seismic cultural shifts in recent Canadian history. First trying cannabis three years ago while recovering from lifesaving abdominal surgery, Thurley quickly came to recognize its therapeutic potential. Cannabis, he discovered, helped not only for his own severe neuropathic pain, but also a wide-range of medical challenges, including mental health concerns.
