TORONTO — Canada’s most populous province, Ontario, plans to sell cannabis in as many as 150 government-run stores after the federal government legalizes recreational marijuana by July.
The government says marijuana will only be sold at specific stores or a government-run website. It’s decided not to sell it through government-run alcohol stores.
The private marijuana dispensaries that have sprung up around the province will be illegal.
Attorney General Yasir Naqvi said Friday sale of marijuana will be restricted to those 19 and older.
Legalization would make Canada the second country to have nationwide legalization, after Uruguay.
Each province in Canada will come up with rules for the sale of recreational cannabis.
