Ontario cannabis retail hopefuls can enter lottery next week

Those interested in opening a cannabis retail store in Ontario will have the chance to enter a lottery early next week to receive one of the first 25 retail licenses for the province.

When the Progressive Conservative (PC) government took leadership of the province in October, they decided to switch the Liberal’s plan of having only government-run retail locations to having privately owned shops as well. As such, no stores were opened for legalization in October so for now, the only way to purchase legal cannabis in Ontario is online through the provincially-run Ontario Cannabis Store.

Wisconsin Republican leaders remain opposed to marijuana legalization despite moves by neighbors

In 2009, it looked like Wisconsin was going to be a leader in passing progressive marijuana legislation. Democrats controlled the Legislature and a bill that would have made Wisconsin the 15th state to legalize medical marijuana had the support of Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle. Polls showed wide public support.

But the bill died in committee when Democratic Rep. Julie Lassa voted with Republicans to tank it.

Nearly a decade later, Wisconsin remains on the sidelines, watching as Michigan and Illinois battle it out to see which state can attract marijuana tourists first.

As county bans marijuana, California City positions itself as hub for sales

Residents of Bakersfield could soon be receiving marijuana deliveries from retailers in California City.

The California City City Council voted to allow 10 delivery-only medical or recreational marijuana dispensaries to reside within city limits.

Although those dispensaries will not be open for the public to visit, they will earn money through delivering cannabis to the surrounding area.

Medical marijuana rules making it hard for some to buy

Michigan's medical marijuana rules have changed again and that has some of you frustrated. We heard from News 10 viewers who are suddenly having a hard time finding a place to buy it legally in Lansing.

As of January 1, 2019, it's no longer acceptable for any dispensary to be in business without both a state and local license. And that means the number of options in the capital city just got slashed.

Right now only two medical marijuana shops in Lansing have both licenses, HG Lansing on Oakland Avenue and Cannaisseur on North East Street.

Nine others have city licenses but are still waiting for state approval. They run the risk of getting rejected for a state license if they stay open during the process.

Following the passage of California Proposition 64 in 2016, which legalized adult use, and L.A.’s own Measure M in 2017, which ushered in local taxes and regulations, there were high hopes for commercial pot: Industry veterans would finally have the opportunity to step out of the shadows and secure some legal protection, the city could tap into a lucrative tax base, and law enforcement would have more guidelines for sniffing out and shutting down illegal operations.
