Several CannabisNB locations shut down due to lack of stock

If you're looking to score some legal Cannibis in Bathurst, you're out of luck.

A sign posted on the door of the city's CannabisNB location says the store is temporarily closed due to a lack of product.

The shortage of cannabis is wide-spread, affecting nearly half of the province's 20 locations, including Campbellton.

CannabisNB's Marie-Andree Bolduc says the Crown corporation only received a fraction of their original order and have been playing 'catch-up' for several weeks.

Bolduc says supply remains a challenge for the time being, but expects stocks will be replenished and stores re-opened within the next few days.
