Downtown Montreal's cannabis store attracts huge lines for legalization day (VIDEOS)

Oct 17 2018, 8:15 pm

Bonjour, high.

The historic day is finally upon us as the country has legalized recreational marijuana. The SQDC (Société québécoise du cannabis) opened its doors at 10 am and downtown Montreal’s cannabis store has had a lineup ever since.

Much like Beer Stores in Ontario, buyers will have to choose from various strains and then have their order filled by a store clerk. Clients will be able to choose between dried buds, ground cannabis, pre-rolled joints, cannabis oil, pills or oral spray, all at various prices.

The SQDC opened three outlets in Montreal and 12 across the province today. There are plans to open between 150 and 160 stores in the next two years across Quebec.

Until then, however, the SQDC shop on the corner of Peel and Saint-Catherine has amassed an impressive line that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. The government-run cannabis stores close at 9 pm.

Social media was buzzing with pictures and videos of people trying to get into the joint.
