Alberta expects to have 80 to 100 cannabis retail stores licensed over the next month, with 17 locations ready for the first day of legal sales on Wednesday.

The Canadian province is confident it will have adequate supplies ready for Wednesday, said Alain Maisonneuve, chief executive officer of Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis, the regulator overseeing recreational marijuana legalization. The AGLC has signed supply agreements with 15 producers to supply it with cannabis, which it will then provide to retailers and sell through the province’s online site. About 250 locations may be open in the first year of operation.
