ONTARIO RETAIL HEALTHY ENOUGH FOR TOO MANY STORES

Ontario celebrated its 100th authorized retail store last week, as provincial regulator AGCO has ramped up its approvals to grant 24 Retail Store Authorizations in 26 days. We’ve come a long way from last year’s REC retail lottery chaos.

Hot after a booming first year, REC chain Fire & Flower paid off $27.17M worth of unsecured convertible debentures. The company was also spotted advertising on Pornhub.com (an age-gated site, one presumes). Jason Spatafora, owner of MarijaunaStocks.com, said ads on the site were “surprisingly cheap” and offered “great” return on investment.
