"We have talked to stores in our county...and anecdotally people have said about 20 to 30 percent of store purchases in Whatcom County are done by Canadians coming from outside". But then no one's actually going to be that compliant.

"I'm hoping what they're going to say is that, 'These are the things that we are going to be looking for, these are things that are unacceptable, and do not even attempt to try that".

The announcement comes on the day that Canada has legalized so-called recreational marijuana. He has voiced concern over the lack of concrete decisions made between the Canadian and American governments on the issue of marijuana legalization. "And my new dealer is the prime minister!"

"There will be a lot of celebrations on the day, and it will nearly all be with illegal cannabis" in some of Canada's biggest cities, said Brad Poulos, an instructor and cannabis business expert at Ryerson University in Toronto.

Fedeli said he was happy with initial reports on the store's sales and defended some of the more unusual products available on the site, including an "intimate" spray with cannabis ingredients designed for amorous couples. A festive atmosphere broke out, with some customers lighting up on the sidewalk and motorists honking their horns in support as they drove by the crowd.

"It feels great to have it happen in my home town", Power said.

Bruce Linton, CEO of Tweed's parent company, Canopy Growth Corp., flew out to make the first sale at the St. John's location - and he landed on the island just in time, after a nasty storm delayed his flight.

The Ontario Cannabis Store website - which offers different types of pot with names such as Easy Cheesy, Super Sonic and Shiskaberry - garnered mixed early reviews on social media, with some praising the website's simple design while others complained about high prices. "I think the social stigma of the "stupid stoner" or the criminal element for using cannabis, a benign substance, as my choice of medicine or recreation, I think that's gonna change", says Power, who plans to frame his historic purchase instead of smoking it. "Prohibition has ended right now", he says.

New Chevy Bolt color is shocking
If the hue looks familiar, that's because it will also be available with the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV. It looks like the original color of highlighter marker - the kind of color that glows in the dark.

In many parts of the country, particularly those with few stores, much of the legal sales action was online, as consumers flocked to websites run by provincial governments and licensed retailers to buy legally, despite a few days' wait for delivery and extra charges.

Uruguay was first was the first country to legalize marijuana.

In a move that had garnered a lot of cheer, as well as, some concerns, hemp stores in Canada are set to throw their doors open on Wednesday, October 17, as the nation has legalised the use of recreational marijuana.

Whether the selection of cannabis products, and pricing, will be enough to entice existing cannabis users away from the illicit market remains to be seen. The products are displayed in plastic or cardboard packages behind counters.

Both jurisdictions are relying on online cannabis sales, at least for now.

"We expect Tilray to acquire a meaningful share of the Canadian cannabis market based on initial supply agreements and through its first mover advantage in building production scale and strengthening national brands and products across a broad and expanding category", the analyst Mike Hickey said.

Researchers in the USA also aren't easily able to study cannabis for medical purposes because the plant is federally illegal. "That needs to stop and that's exactly what we have done". "It's going to take awhile to iron out all the wrinkles".
