Private cannabis stores in British Columbia, Canada, are now allowed to offer non-medical cannabis to consumers through regular mail and other delivery service providers, a move the industry believes will steer more illegal sales into the regulated cannabis market. The provincial government says the move will provide economic opportunities for stores and make them more competitive than the province's online retail platform operated by Liquor Distribution Branch (BLDB), B.C.'s liquor distribution arm. Before the new regulations took effect on July 8, BLDB's service had a monopoly on e-commerce for recreational marijuana. The new policy means the province's illegal cannabis-to-door delivery service may finally face real competition from the regulated cannabis industry.
