Independent Saskatchewan pot retailers banding collectively to compete against larger interests.
ome independent retail cannabis retailer players are banding collectively to combat what they see as the increasing encroachment of significant company in Saskatchewan’s legal pot business.
Almost a year right after the very first of the province’s retail cannabis retailers opened, at least 25 out of 36 operating retailers — extra than two-thirds — are owned by a publicly traded enterprise or chain.
