Number of stores increasing, cannabis prices dropping

Jim Southam struggles to find the right word to describe the Saskatoon retail cannabis market heading into the summer of 2022.

Saturated. Cutthroat. Unrealistic.

They're all accurate. It's a great time to be a cannabis consumer in Saskatchewan, but not so great for the people on the other side of the counter.

"Looking around at other stores, I've seen three-and-a-half grams selling for $20 or less, plus tax," he said.

"That's less than the black market was my whole life. That's just not sustainable."

Saskatchewan drivers will begin to notice more reminders of impaired driving in their communities this month.

MADD Saskatoon's Mobile Sign Campaign launched on Friday, showing the locations where impaired drivers were caught and charged. The signs also encourage drivers to call 911 if they suspect a driver is impaired.

“Sometimes what catches people more is some of the locations and the time of day,” MADD Saskatoon President Bonny Stevenson said.

“I always tell people that impaired drivers are everywhere throughout our city on every street at any time of day. It's not just after the bars close. It’s on Circle Drive.”

Last week, the RCMP was marking National Impaired Driving Prevention week highlighting high drivers on Saskatchewan roads.

Only exception is requirement stores be minimum 60m away from schools, adjacent parks

It's been three years since cannabis was legalized in Canada and the Regina city council says it is ready to start treating pot stores like any other retail business, with a few exceptions. 

Council voted on Wednesday to approve a report that will "significantly improve" the city's cannabis retail regulations, according to city staff.
