Matt Maurer speaks to Global News about the markup price in relation to farm-gate cannabis retail

This spring, Ontario will start to see farm-gate cannabis retail: much like a vineyard or brewery, customers will be able to go to a growing facility and buy weed directly from the producer.

“If you have a farm-gate store and there’s no minimum price, what do you need the wholesaler for?” asks cannabis lawyer Matt Maurer.

“I can’t think, sitting here, off the top of my head, in a sort of fictional transaction, not a physical transaction, what is the point of a markup? If that is what is going to happen solely to get around the existing legislation, which requires it to be purchased from the OCS, then what is the markup for? What is the rationale behind it?”
