Costing Cannabis Retailers For Not Opening On Time

ACGO has penalized nine more outlets for not serving customers by April 30th

More cannabis retailers will be a little lighter in the pocketbook.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has penalized nine more outlets for not serving customers by April 30th.

The provincial government chose 25 retailers through a lottery to open the province’s first brick-and-mortar cannabis stores on April 1st, but fewer than half met the deadline.

The commission says it has gone ahead with a final draw-down on letters of credit submitted by seven of the licencees, taking $25,000 apiece from the $50,000 each initially provided.
