Last year when we wrote about the SAQ selling weed, we never actually thought it would happen.
The SAQ was pushing hard to be able to open weed stores in addition to their liquor stores so that they could become the exclusive weed dealers of the province. And now it looks like this silly dream has finally become a reality.
This morning, the SAQ signed an agreement with Aphria Inc. to guarantee a steady supply of Cannabis to sell in their new retail stores and online.
The deal is for the SAQ to purchase 12,000 kg of cannabis during the first year as well as cannabis oils and other cannabis products.
