Starting a week from today, people in Ontario will be able to legally buy marijuana at a government-run online store. Orders will be shipped to customers for a $5 delivery fee using Canada Post. Visitors to the website must first enter their birth date to confirm they’re older than 19.
The Ontario Cannabis Store will sell dried cannabis, capsules, oils and pre-rolled joints. About 70 strains of pot will be available when the site launches, with more planned in the months to come. Product prices have not yet been set.
The website says delivery time will be between one and three days anywhere in Ontario. Products will be delivered by Canada Post in plain “child-resistant, tamper-evident containers and are received directly from licensed producers.” Customers who aren’t home when the weed arrives will get a slip to pick it up – in person – at a Canada Post outlet. Packages won’t be left at the doorstep or with concierges at condo buildings.
For now, the OCS has launched a ‘learning’ website which includes basic information about cannabis, including safe consumption practices and health risks, methods of consumption, cooking safely with cannabis and answers to legal questions, plus an FAQ section.
