IN OTHER NEWS, CANADA IS FACING A NATIONWIDE CANNABIS SHORTAGE:
Canada Runs out of Legal Cannabis Only 4 Days After Legalization.
Canadian cannabis stores in Alberta and other parts of the nation have run out of legal cannabis just four days after legalization came into effect. One of the ongoing issues that the cannabis industry faces is the amount of legally compliant growers is now not enough to feed the rabid demand for marijuana in Canada. One company out of Winnipeg told Vice that they sold out on the first morning, selling more than $50,000 worth of products. Other news articles reported how Alberta ran dry of Cannabis oil on the first day. Eager consumers might now look to the streets to solve the problem, which is the exact opposite of what the legalization was supposed to achieve in the first place.
Alberta hunts for more cannabis producers as demand drains supplies. Alberta is looking to boost its roster of cannabis producers — and bolster its supplies —
as eager consumers continue to deplete provincial stockpiles of popular weed products. By Tuesday afternoon, AGLC's retail website was sold out of 17 of 81 kinds of dry flower, four out of 10 pre-rolled cannabis products, four of six oils, and of all of its capsules. Among the products listed as sold out on the website were Kiwi Cannabis Mango Haze and Riff Subway Scientist. "We plan to continue to actively seek additional suppliers going forward," said AGLC spokeswoman Kaleigh Miller.
