The OCS says it will also establish a wholesale distribution network to supply pot in private stores. That move is a contrast to the Liberals’ plan for a provincial government monopoly on pot sales.

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.
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.
“We’ll leave it to the Ontario Cannabis Store to continue to put products out there that the people of Ontario are looking forward to purchasing,” he said.
Attorney General Caroline Mulroney has stressed that safety and privacy are priorities for the government when it comes to online sales.
