AGLC offering discounts to cannabis consumers

Albertans are pot fans

If you’re struggling to find the right present ahead of the Christmas season, consider adding cannabis to your shopping list.

The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission has introduced discounts on legal marijuana products available through the agency’s website at albertacannabis.org.

Shipping, which was initially $9.95, is now $4.95. At the beginning of December, the retail prices of many of the products on the website were also reduced.

The discounts are not temporary, but are subject to change.

The price reduction is a new strategy by the AGLC is to shutter the black market.

“By reducing the shipping fee, the retail price of cannabis on the website will be closer in alignment to prices in the illicit market,” said AGLC spokeswoman Heather Holmen.

The reduction in prices is also a boon to retailers.

“As part of the private retail model in Alberta, retailers have the ability to establish their own prices for products, so you may notice variances in pricing from retailer to retailer, in the same way you may with liquor products.

“As an industry, we want consumers to know where to buy legal, federally inspected and regulated products.”

Currently, there are nearly 370 retail locations provincewide.
