Ontario to create cannabis control board.




Ontario government  is expected to announce today  that it will create a cannabis control board and open up to 60 storefronts across the province to sell marijuana.Illegal pot shops in Ontario would be shut down over the next 12 months.

The plan aims to restrict marijuana sales to those 19 and older, a year above the minimum age recommended by the federal government’s cannabis task force report in December.

The 30 to 60 stores selling marijuana to the public will not be housed inside existing LCBO stores.
