Store Manager Eric Lantz said they began placing orders for products Friday in hopes of getting the shop open this week. They’re not sure what day, but they’d become the first pot shop to open right across the state line from the Treasure Valley, Ontario Community Development Director Dan Cummings told the Statesman on Monday.

“We’re hopefully going to be open by Wednesday ... but Friday is our anticipated opening,” Lantz said.

Marijuana stocks remain under considerable pressure, as a range of calamities and fears that the global legal marijuana market won’t be as large as originally claimed weigh on their value.

How to handle greened-out guests and other tips for pot party hosts

What’s legal?

Across the country, Canadians aged 18 or 19 and older — depending on the province — are permitted to have up to 30 grams of cannabis in public and share it with others. You can grow up to four cannabis plants per residence (no, not per person) for personal use. In stores, you can purchase dried cannabis, oils, capsules, and sprays. While you’re permitted to make edibles at home, selling edibles is currently prohibited — at least until October 17, 2019 (products will become available for sale by mid-December).

Ontario's first legal cannabis festival coming to Bingemans

It's an Ontario-first, and it's happening in Kitchener. 

The Ontario Cannabis Festival will take over Bingemans on September 7. 

Co-founder Tony Millar says the grassroots festival is made by cannabis lovers, for cannabis lovers - and will have something for everyone. 

"We'll have ongoing classes throughout the day. These classes range from how to roll a joint, to how to grow your own flower. So a lot of workshops and a lot of education. People can also learn how to infuse cannabis butter and extract cannabis into oil."

Participants can also attempt something historic!

Health Canada revokes licences of B.C. cannabis producer Agrima

B.C. cannabis producer Agrima Botanicals Corp. has had its licences revoked by Health Canada, months after the company disclosed the regulator's finding that "unauthorized activities" with pot took place at the firm.

Agrima is now listed on Health Canada's website of licensed producers with the status "revoked," after having its licences suspended last fall.

Agrima's parent company Ascent Industries Corp. said in November that the regulator had asserted that "unauthorized activities" involving cannabis occurred at the company during a period of time when it was privately held, but it was appealing its suspension.

Hemp licence applications boom but some experienced farmers urge caution

The legalization of cannabis and the ongoing Chinese ban on Canadian canola is sparking a boom of interest in hemp among Prairie farmers, but some experienced producers are warning of "unrealistic expectations."

According to Statistics Canada, the number of hemp acres planted by farmers nationwide is expected to double this year, from 41,200 in 2018 to 82,500 in 2019. While Health Canada — which licenses farmers to grow industrial hemp — will not release its 2019 figures until this fall, the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance industry group said it has been told the number of licence applications has more than doubled this year and the majority of new applicants are first-time hemp growers.
