合法买卖才四天,加拿大大麻已几乎售罄

Emma Hinchliffe 2018年10月28日

娱乐用大麻合法的法律生效才四天,加拿大全国零售店的大麻已经几乎销售一空。

加拿大的合法大麻已供不应求。娱乐用大麻合法的法律生效才四天,全国零售店的大麻已经几乎销售一空。

“乱套了,供应完全跟不上。”加拿大阿尔伯塔省大麻经销店Waldo’s 420 Store的店主帕特里克·华莱士对加拿大广播公司(CBC)表示。

今年6月,加拿大议会投票批准大麻合法,于10月17日生效,加拿大各省的相关法规各有不同。刚刚获得合法身份的大麻产业年销售额估计能达到65亿美元。

而据新媒体Vice报道,在合法化的第一天就出现了问题。无论是在魁北克、萨斯喀彻温、纽芬兰三个省和加拿大西北地区全境,还是网店,消费者都很难买到合法的大麻产品。

经营大麻的商家要拿到牌照才能出售,现在即便持有牌照,店家想再次下单时也订不到足够的货。有些情况下店主下单后只能满足一部分。一方面供应有限,另一方面则是远超预期的需求。

加拿大卡尔伯里市的大麻商家Beltline Cannabis的店主凯伦·巴里告诉CBC:“我们经营网店,但网上根本没有货,一点都没有。相信阿尔伯塔博彩、酒类和大麻委员会(Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission)正努力解决问题。”

一些店铺则选择在供应问题解决前歇业,挂上“售罄”的牌子。

今年9月,一些早早获得经营牌照的商家可以预订即将合法的大麻产品。即便当时也存在供应问题。华莱士向CBC透露,广告宣传了300款产品,但只能买到70种。刚拿到牌照的店家面临的供应短缺形势则更为严重。

“合法化已经四天了……面对短缺大家都束手无策。”阿尔伯塔博彩、酒类和大麻委员会的女发言人希瑟·霍尔曼对CBC说。(财富中文网)

Canada can’t keep up with demand for newly legal weed. Four days after the country put marijuana legalization into effect nationally, retail shops are nearly sold out.

“It’s a mess. The supply is just a mess,” Patrick Wallace, owner of the Alberta shop Waldo’s 420 Store, told CBC.

Canada’s Parliament voted to legalize marijuana in June, and that decision went into effect on October 17, with differing rules across Canada’s provinces. The newly legal industry is expected to be worth $6.5 billion in annual sales.

The problem started on the first day of legalization, when customers across Quebec, Saskatchewan, Canada’s Northwest Territories, Newfoundland, and online shops all had trouble securing legal weed, Vice reported.

Stores selling marijuana are issued licenses to do so, but even those licensed shops haven’t been able to access enough supply when it’s time to reorder. Orders storeowners placed have in some cases only contained part of what was requested, and demand for that limited supply has far exceeded expectations.

“We were on the website, but there is nothing on the website. There is no product,” Karen Barry of Calgary’s Beltline Cannabis told CBC. “I’m sure the [Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission] is working hard to remedy the problem.”

Some stores have closed up shop until the supply problem is fixed, posting “out of stock” signs.

Even in September, when early license holders were able to preorder the soon-to-be-legal product, supply was a problem. Wallace told CBC that of 300 advertised products, only 70 were available at the time. Shops just getting their licenses now are facing an even worse shortage.

“It’s day four of legalization … and nobody has all the answers right now,” AGLC spokeswoman Heather Holmen told CBC.
