New Brunswick issues call for 15 cannabis retail spaces

A New Brunswick government-owned corporation has issued a call for proposals for 15 retail spaces across the province to sell adult-use cannabis.

A spokesperson for the Finance Ministry declined to confirm to Marijuana Business Daily whether the tender is open to the private sector.

NB Liquor, the government corporation that oversees the province’s liquor industry, issued the tender calling for 15 different 3,000-square-foot spaces to sell marijuana, noting they should not be attached to the agency’s liquor stores, CBC News reported.

In September, the province announced that a Crown corporation would oversee the distribution of recreational marijuana, but the government entity would not run retail operations.

The 15 locations should be “substantially completed” by May 31, 2018, the tender states.

They would be located in: Greater Moncton; Fredericton; Oromocto; Greater Saint John; Bathurst; Edmundston; Sackville; Shediac; Miramichi; Sussex; St. Stephen; Richibucto; Tracadie; Perth-Andover; and the Campbellton area.

    Canada and its BS about free standing pot shops (cant be attached to liquor stores) why the F —- not ? Other countries have liquor and everything else sold in one store and I have yet to see any issues. In fact I think it works GREAT. Canada when will you get in the present century

      Read the article you dope. The liquor stores are government run and they decided not to have the dispensaries run by the government. Either way you’d be complaining though
