As of 12:01am, marijuana is legal in Canada. There were late night parties across the country last night as people blazed up for the first time legally. Marijuana can now be purchased legally through the Ontario Cannabis Store at OCS.ca. The website has 70 types of marijuana available for purchase. That number will soon expand to 150 types. The cheapest dried cannabis is available for $7.50 for one gram while the most expensive goes for $13.25. It also sells oils and capsules, pre-rolled joints as well as accessories like vaporizers, bongs, pipes, cleaning supplies and grinders.
On OCS.ca only VISA or MasterCard will be accepted for online purchases. Officials say they will look at adding other payment options in the future. When checking out, customers will be required to confirm that they are 19 years of age or older. Deliveries will be made to Ontario addresses only by Canada Post at a flat rate of $5, and will take between one to three business days. Purchases from the OCS will be in plain packaging and delivered only to anyone who answers the door and is 19 or older.
Who was the first Canadian to buy legal weed in Canada? His name is Ian Power. He did so at a store that opened at 12:01 on Water Street in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. But says he has no intention of smoking or otherwise consuming the gram of weed he bought — instead, he plans to frame it as a piece of Canadian history.
Here’s a potential problem with marijuana sales. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has served notice to Canada Post that workers could walk off the job as early as next week because the nearly year-long contract negotiations have stalled. The postal service has contracts with several provinces to deliver legal online pot sales, including Ontario — where online sales will be the only source of the product until April.
Ontario residents are able to smoke recreational cannabis wherever the smoking of tobacco is permitted. Note: some municipalities have restrictions in place that ban smoking in different areas.
