Education is key as the public gets ready for the legalization of marijuana on Oct. 17, say the members of a panel at a forum held this week in Brantford.

Recreational cannabis will be sold online in Ontario when legalized this fall and in private retail stores across the province early next year, the government announced Monday, reversing the previous administration’s plan to distribute cannabis through publicly owned outlets.

Premier Doug Ford and the Ontario Progressive Conservative government have signalled that cannabis will be sold in privately owned stores rather than through the newly created and government-owned Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS)

The Ontario government will allow legal cannabis to be sold in private stores, a reversal of the previous Liberal government’s decision to give the provincial liquor regulator exclusive rights over retail sales.
