New Brunswick says delay of legal cannabis sales costly for province

Finance Minister Cathy Rogers says all 20 Cannabis NB locations will be open on Oct. 17 and staff will be hired and trained this summer.

She says an original forecast of $6 million in revenues this year will be more like $3.6 million, because of the delays in Ottawa getting Bill C-45 passed.

Rogers still won’t reveal the prices to be charged in New Brunswick.

New Brunswick Health Minister Benoit Bourque says one education program has already been launched and there will be more, targeting youth.

Kim Snow, the chief residential tenancies officer for the province, says property owners can restrict tenants from smoking or growing cannabis if it’s in a lease from the start, or amended by mutual consent.
