AGLC temporarily suspending license applications

Cannabis shortage forces AGLC to suspend license applications for the time being

Cannabis supply levels have become a major concern and those hoping to open up a store are suffering as a result.

In a statement released by Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC)  they announced they will be suspending applications for a cannabis license and will not be giving out any new licenses either.

That's in order to deal with the national shortage of cannabis products that has been plaguing shops across the country.

As of November 17, the AGLC said they've only gotten about 20% of all the products they'd order a month prior.

They ordered enough cannabis product to support up to 250 retail stores in Alberta for the first 6 months of legalization.

If you aren't interested in waiting you can get a full refund of your application fee from the AGLC.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
