Prime Minister Justin Trudeau takes part in a year end interview with The Canadian Press on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.

Sean Kilpatrick / The Canadian Press OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is blaming pockets of resistance to the legalization of marijuana for a cannabis supply shortage that has slowed the dissemination of legal weed in parts of Canada. The shortages have been most pronounced in Ontario, forcing that province to limit the number of licenced pot dispensaries that will be opened in the spring. Quebec has also experienced shortfalls in supply and has reduced the hours that cannabis stores are opening their doors to customers. In a year-end interview with The Canadian Press last week, Trudeau called the supply shortage the biggest challenge associated with the legalization of cannabis. Municipal governments and those who resisted legal pot now ’caught flat footed’ on supply: Trudeau
