Canada: Alberta won't permit cannabis lounges until edible products are regulated

Albertans hoping to spark up in a cannabis cafe or lounge will have to wait until edible cannabis products are regulated, says the province. In a statement, the province said while they await more information on an easy-to-eat pot product, they will be ready to regulate brick-and-mortar consumption sites at a later date.

Health Canada has set a prospective date of July 2019 for the sale of edible marijuana products. Ward 3 Coun. Jyoti Gondek said a lack of government communication has caused issues that could have been prevented.
