Recreational cannabis has some small businesses already reaping rewards. Marijuana is now legal in Canada but can only be purchased online right now. But that’s not stopping corner stores like Max Convenience in Downtown Simcoe from capitalizing on the new law.
Manager Nick Shafto says they’ve been getting more customers thanks to the sale of marijuana accessories.
Shafto says once he starts selling beer at his store, he hopes the sale marijuana will soon follow.
