The demand for legal cannabis has outpaced the supply for Medicine Hat pot shops.

Since opening October 17, all three city stores are either out, or nearly out of product.

Waldo’s 420 owner, Patrick Wallace, says there just isn’t enough legal cannabis to order in Alberta

Wallace says, “It has everything to do with the supply.  The original 17 stores, we were the second one licensed in Alberta, and there was only 17 allowed to do a pre-order to be ready for opening day and the 17 wiped the warehouse out.  We didn’t get anywhere near what we wanted.  there’s not enough stock because there’s not enough supply.”

Wallace expects to receive a special order for the AGLC today and possibly the regular order on Friday.
