About Cannabis Sales Nova Scotia

Cannabis Sales Nova Scotia (NSLC) continues to see strong sales of recreational marijuana, even after a decline in sales during the coronavirus pandemic. NSLC reports its cannabis sales for the second quarter of this fiscal year increased by more than 20 percent from last year.

A big factor was a jump in sales of locally grown and produced cannabis, which now accounts for about one-third of all NSLC sales. The NSLC says local sales for the second quarter totaled $10.3 million. That’s more than double the amount of locally-produced alcohol sold during the same period.

Across the province, the NSLC now sells cannabis in 37 stores. That includes 13 standalone cannabis stores and 14 locations where marijuana is sold alongside alcohol. Many NSLC locations have been renovated to make way for marijuana sales.

The NSLC expects to expand its network of cannabis stores in the future. In addition to the seven stores it operates in partnership with independent retailers, it is looking at the possibility of opening 14 new standalone cannabis stores and six additional locations where marijuana is sold alongside alcohol.

Adults 19 and over can purchase recreational marijuana from NSLC’s retail storefronts, online or through their mobile app. The NSLC is the only authorized retailer of cannabis in the province. Those with a medical marijuana prescription can continue to get their product from their physician or nurse practitioner, as well as private pharmacies and authorized producers. It is illegal to consume cannabis in public places, and it’s also against the law to drive while under the influence of cannabis. Anyone caught with cannabis in their vehicle faces a $2,000 fine.
