On the East coast, officials with the federal government are currently taking a closer look at New Brunswick’s Cannabis NB website.
Concerns have been brought forth about the Cannabis NB website, and whether it meets requirements laid out by the federal government.
Health Minister Ginette Petitpas-Taylor says officials are currently examining the site, “There are pictures on the site that possibly promote lifestyle advertisement. Our regulation package that we brought forward in September is very strict and we absolutely do not allow any lifestyle advertisement. We don’t want this product to be interesting to children, therefore the department is looking at this to see if it is in breach of those regulations.”
Petitpas-Taylor says if it is found that the Cannabis NB website is not following the rules, they will be asked to change it immediately.
It doesn’t appear that Ontario’s official online cannabis store is facing a similar review.
