New Brunswick to launch 20 government-run rec MJ outlets

The New Brunswick government plans to sell recreational marijuana through a network of 20 stand-alone nonprofit stores in 15 communities that will be owned and operated by a subsidiary of the Crown corporation NB Liquor, but Finance Minister Cathy Rogers didn’t rule out private sector participation “down the road.”

“We didn’t start out letting the private sector sell alcohol,” Rogers said to CBC News, referring to the province’s alcohol model that now allows for some private sector outlets.
