Atholville cannabis producer inks deal to supply product to Shoppers Drug Mart

An Atholville cannabis producer's workforce is expected to increase by hundreds following a new supply agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart.

The agreement will see Vancouver-based Zenabis provide Shoppers with dried marijuana and cannabis oil from its medical branded product line.

The company's website says the products will only be available on-line as current legislation doesn't permit them to be sold in-store.

The Tribune reports the deal will result in around 400 jobs being added to the company's workforce to meet demand.
