As pot grows up, design enters the scene

The new Ajoya cannabis store is banking its success on high design. It hired Colorado's top architect, Jeff Sheppard.

When marijuana first became legal, design was the last thing on the mind of retailers. They just wanted their stores open in a hurry so they could start turning all that bud into bucks.

The results, visually speaking, were disastrous. Early pot shops looked a lot like bail-bond operations or check cashing centers: simple, white rooms with metal folding chairs, maybe an Ikeaprint on the wall. Buyers interfaced with sellers though bullet-proof glass windows, as if no one, on either side of the transaction, was trustworthy.

Medical marijuana company in Truro buying land to build facility

A medical marijuana company in Truro, N.S., says it has received security approvals from Health Canada and is moving ahead with plans to build a facility approximately 17,000 square feet in size. 

On Monday, The Truro Herbal Company, or The THC, will officially acquire 2.5 hectares of land in the town's industrial park, says president Evan Price. He says the company was waiting for Health Canada to finish security checks before finalizing the land transfer. 

The company plans to build a two-storey facility with 6.7-metre ceilings. 

"You have to build basically a bank that's wrapped in a jail," Price said. 

After submitting a proposal more than 2,000 pages long, the company received Stage 3 approval from the federal government this week, he says.
