Quebec to sell Pot online
Quebec to sell Pot online – Quebec’s legislation on how to control the selling and distribution of cannabis will purportedly include online web-based sales, according to a report by Radio-Canada. The bill is expected to be tabled on Thursday November 16th.
The provincial government plans to have the SAQ manage online sales and have Canada Post handle the deliveries ordered through the SAQ website, according to their sources.
Canada Post has already been delivering medicinal cannabis since 2013 and it would be modelled on the existing online delivery system for alcohol, which they have already been doing for the SAQ.
Before handing over the package, a postal employee would check identification to confirm the customer is of legal age, then ask to see proof of the online purchase – before giving them the package. The new online service would make it easier for customers who do not have easy access to one of the stores.
Check back soon for details on the expected legislation when Public Health Minister Lucie Charlebois tables the bill.
