Shoppers Drug Mart has signed a deal with Toronto-based Aphria to supply medical marijuana for online sales, the retailer announced Tuesday.
The news comes just hours ahead of an announcement from public safety minister Mike Farnworth on non-medical marijuana in B.C. and and just seven months ahead of federal legalization for recreational marijuana.
The retailer is currently waiting on Health Canada approval for their application to be a licensed producer.
Previously, Shoppers Drug Mart had been on the hunt for a medical marijuana brand manager.
