A new marijuana shop — selling products like Mary’s Triple Strength Sativa Bunnies and Chronic Kitchen Gummy Stars — has opened in downtown St. John’s.
CannaLeaf St. John’s was operating Monday at 448 Water Street, and word had travelled among customers.
One customer, who called the shop a “medicinal marijuana store,” told CBC News that he was able to buy from CannaLeaf without any prescription.
He said the store was more reliable than buying marijuana from other dealers, adding “it’s exactly what they say it is.”
He also said the existence of a storefront seems to remove some of the “taboo” of buying marijuana.
“It’s a lot nicer. It removes a lot of the stress and anxiety and feeling like you’re doing a bad thing,” he said.
