This hilariously tiny pre-rolled joint managed to get into the hands of Gles, who posted his find on Reddit.
The product, Halcyon's "Garlic Z" pre-roll, is found at the SQDC and costs $5.60 for a 0.5-gram joint.
Gles told MTL Blog that he bought the product on November 9 and decided to post the photo "so that people don't make the same mistake as me," he said. "Also, I hope that Halcyon will remedy the situation."
He told us that he hasn't contacted the manufacturer about this, however.
The company that owns Halcyon, Greentone, is a Quebec-based cannabis producer.
The SQDC told MTL Blog that "for the producers, the weight is the priority versus the length of the pre-roll, within the specs of their manufacturing processes."
"I don't walk around with a scale in my pocket," Gles told MTL Blog.
"I understand that they're defensive because they have a lot of people asking for a refund or some kind of compensation but I didn't ask them for anything."
"It's their reputation, not mine."
MTL Blog reached out to Greentone, but they haven't gotten back to us yet. We'll update this article when they do.
Twelve percent of allophones — those whose first language is neither English nor French — use cannabis.
This is compared to 21% of Quebecers who use cannabis overall.
Montrealers also combine alcohol and cannabis more than the Quebec average.
A press release from Éduc'alcool says, "35% of francophones who use cannabis and alcohol together combine the two always or often (vs. 28% of Quebecers overall) [...] The same is true for 26% of anglophones and 29% of allophones who use cannabis and drink alcohol at the same time."
Data for the survey was collected online from August through October 2020, and from February 15 to March 30, 2021. Éduc'alcool surveyed 1,200 people in the Montreal region and a total of 7,600 respondents across Quebec.
Candidates must be at least 21 years old and should possess a high school diploma as well as have at least one year of experience in customer service.
Your main responsibilities as an SQDC branch consultant would be informing customers about different cannabis products, advising them on how to use the products in a safe and healthy way, cashing people out and doing inventory.
Applicants will have to pass a security clearance procedure in order to work for the SQDC.
Shifts vary between days, evenings and weekends, and the SQDC offers a full range of benefits, including pension, disability, life insurance and drug coverage.

Expected opening date of the SQDC's new Laval location
Vanessa Roland, a spokesperson for the SQDC, told MTL Blog the opening of the SQDC's new location will create 15 jobs in Laval.
As required by Quebec law, Roland said the shop will not be in a zone with schools nearby.
She said the Laval location will have the same COVID-19 public health measures in place as SQDC stores across the province, including mandatory face coverings, increased cleaning and reduced product handling.
Between four and seven customers are currently allowed in SQDC stores at one time.
As another sanitary measure, SQDC employees verify customers' identification cards by visual means only.
All of Quebec's SQDC stores are similar, said Roland, noting they carry the same products and have similar layouts and dimensions.
"The Laval store is no exception," she said.
More information will be available in the coming weeks.
