The province currently has 12 licensed retailers operating
Nova Scotia is considering expanding the number of retail cannabis stores, as online sales have been slower than expected.
Finance Minister Karen Casey said Thursday that online pot sales were expected to account for about 10 per cent or more of total sales, but are only in the range of six per cent.
Casey said that’s why the province has asked the Nova Scotia Liquor Corp. to look at adding to its 12 retail locations currently selling cannabis. She said an expansion would also address geographical gaps in the province.
“We believed that online would address some of those areas of the province where there was a gap,” said Casey. “We’ve recognized that to date it has not materialized, so we have to look at how can we get out to other areas if online is not going to bring the consumer in.”
