As pot shops legally open their doors on April 1, residents in Durham Region will have to wait a little longer to go shopping locally.
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) approved 10 stores to open legally as of April 1 across Ontario.
Proposed stores in Oshawa and Ajax were not on the list of 10 stores.
Fabulous Leaf, to be located at 575 Laval Dr. in Oshawa — and Smok, to be located at 20 Kingston Rd. W. in Ajax — have not yet been issued licenses by the AGCO. In both cases, the public notice phase has ended.
