Lethbridge now has a six-pack – of marijuana marts.
On Tuesday, the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission listed two more Lethbridge locations as approved and licensed to open.
They’re both along Mayor Magrath Drive, bringing the current total for south Lethbridge to four. The other two, previously announced, are right downtown and in a westside shopping area.
The latest outlets are Bridge Bud Supply at 1917 Mayor Magrath Drive S., and Canna Cabana at 23 Southgate Blvd., just off Mayor Magrath Drive.
The first to open its doors in Lethbridge was the NewLeaf store at 1328 Mayor Magrath S. – conspicuous for its lineups outside. NewLeaf, a Calgary company that’s opened a number of locations across the province, has also been licensed for a westside location at 338 University Drive W.
Twenty Four Karat, on 5 Avenue at Mayor Magrath Drive South, was given AGLCC approval late last week.
Downtown, while a number of “opening soon” signs have been posted, the only licensed business there to date is the SpiritLeaf store at 329 5 St. S.
Province-wide, the AGLCC has issued 55 retail licences.
