Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are collectively spending more than one million dollars on cannabis every week, according to sales figures released by Cannabis NL. The grand total, up to the last week of November, is $6,061,300.44 in retail sales from licensed producers. That’s 698.44 kilograms, enough for every person in the province to roll at least a couple of joints each. Despite the obvious enthusiasm for pot, data from the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary shows there hasn’t been a major spike in unlawful drug-related behaviour. N.L. bought $6M of pot in first 6 weeks of legalization
