Here's how the Internet is reacting to the Ontario Cannabis Store's first week fail

Oct 26 2018, 2:40 pm

Ten days into legalization, and Ontario cannabis smokers are still awaiting their provincial pot delivery.

A statement issued by the Ontario Cannabis Store on Thursday said that while their website functioned well and was able to process more than 150,000 orders, the province received more orders online in the first day than all other provinces combined.

And that, along with the rotating strikes at Canada Post, has caused major delays in local cannabis deliveries.

While a majority of first-day orders will be fulfilled within days, many first-day customers will still see delivery times that are longer, they warn customers.

Meanwhile, for now, OCS has increased its capacity to speak with callers and address wait times for people on hold with their customer service lines.

“We continue to ask for the public’s patience as we work through these unprecedented issues,” said OCS President Patrick Ford. “OCS is committed to the highest standard of customer service, and we are taking steps to ensure we can achieve this standard.”

But the public has clearly lost its patience.

And this is probably what everyone is thinking now…
