Legal cannabis online in a few months

The online sale of cannabis has changed and became safer for underage children. Specifically, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission unveiled its new website for cannabis sales. The website has a system which asks credit card and credentials for proving the buyer’s age. Personal data such as name, date of birth etc. are also required. If this system doesn’t work and buyers haven’t any credit card, they can upload government-issued identification to verify identity and age match, as Kaleigh Miller, communications officer said. In the situation that the identification also doesn’t work, there will be a barcode for the customer to take to the nearest Canada Post outlet for age verification.

The AGLC is the only legal site for selling online cannabis and cooperates with 15 licensed producers, including Alberta-based Sundial Growers Inc., Acreage Pharms Ltd. and Aurora. The procedure is actually very simple, when the package arrives on the buyer’s home, only 18 years old and above can receive it. And if no one is home the package cannot be left on the doorstep or in the mailbox.

Moreover, in a phone interview, the communications liaison for the commission, Angelle Sasseville, said that she is in negotiation for underrating the shipping so they can make the illegal purchase of drugs less appealing. This website, http://albertacannabis.org, will go live on Octomber 17th and the customers will not only have the opportunity to select from a variety of cannabis oils, dried flower, seeds and pre-rolled joints but they can also get smell profiles of each product. Also, the percent which is allowed for buyers is 30gr per transaction.

Earlier this year, the AGLC announced that OnX Enterprise Solutions had signed a three-year contract with the commission with regard to the implementation and development of the website but at the end of the term there will be an option to extend the contract for three terms for a total of two years each. An additional year could be added at the end, for 10 years in total.
