C-Stores Warn About Inconsistent Regulation of Cannabis & Tobacco

The government of Canada is considering important changes to the rules governing both a legal product, tobacco, and a currently-illegal product, marijuana. But their approaches are very different and in the view of the Canadian Convenience Stores Association and the National Convenience Stores Distributors Association, not only unfair, but unlikely to produce the kinds of results the government is seeking.  Our white paper argues that it will increase the sales of illegal tobacco, while undercutting the thousands of small business people across the country who run corner stores and the distributors who serve them.
