A Closer Look at Manitoba’s Dispensary Announcement
Author: Jon Hiltz  09/11/2017 - 20:08:00

The entrepreneurial community in Manitoba is invigorated following Tuesday’s announcements by Premier Brian Pallister and Minister of Growth, Enterprise, and Trade, Blaine Pedersen to allow for a private sector in the distribution and sale of marijuana. 

One of the main highlights of this inclusive model involves privately owned and operated dispensaries that would source their supply from the province’s Liquor and Lotteries Corporation. This publicly-welcomed prototype is vastly different from the retail scenarios announced by Ontario and New Brunswick, which decided a complete government monopoly is the best option for its citizens. 

“This is the best of both worlds,” said Minister Pedersen in an interview with Marijuana.com. “We will use our liquor and gaming authority to license the retail outfits and do the regulatory, we’ll use [them] to do the purchasing and to control the flow of product going through, but then we turn the retail over to the private sector. We have a very strong private sector here in Manitoba and we will continue to build it.”
