WASHINGTON (Circa) – Canada is reportedly running low on Marijuana supply just days after its legalization.
Marijuana was legalized in Canada on Wednesday, becoming the first industrialized nation and the second country in the world, to legalize recreational cannabis, according to the Independent.
The Independent reported that police were called to shops throughout Canada due to the high demand of Marijuana from frustrated customers unable to purchase it.
According to the Independent, former Toronto police chief Bill Blair told CBC about the issue of the short supply of Marijuana compared to the high demand.
“We expected, you know, certain strains might run out and there would be a bit of a run on supply,” he said.
He also expressed to CBC that he believes the low supply is temporary, the Independent reported.
“But, you know, they've got a pretty good infrastructure in place and I'm confident it will work," he said.
The Independent reported that citizens can carry up to 30 grams of cannabis in public and each household is eligible to grow up to four marijuana plants under the new law.
