(FORT WILLIAM FIRST NATION, ON) – The long wait is over for the little pot shop that could. The shop opened up initially for only a matter of a few days before being forced shut down back in December.
It appears that all the issues have been resolved and Bubbas Bud & Smoke will open on Tuesday at 1:00 pm. (Initially the opening was set for 10:00 am but has now been pushed back to 1:00 pm.)
Bubba’s Bud & Smoke has the support of the community and numerous other organizations and people of importance across the area. Fort William First Nation is not immune to the influx of fentanyl and crack cocaine being flooded in from southern Ontario. Hopefully with this legal, safe option available, people will pack their pipes with the green stuff instead.
Bubba’s will be open for business and are saying they will now stay open for business.
Estimated prices are between $2.00 a gram and around $20 a gram for craft and specialized marijuana.
The company also had plans to open a “drive-thru” service at the location, so people can get their pot as they would get their meals at McDonald’s.
Prices on the bud range from $10 to $20 a gram but deals are available on purchases over 30 grams. There is even a $2.00 a gram special. Most of the buds are sourced from triple-A pot farms, and the public is assured that only the best is available at the higher price ranges.
Its obvious you can order online and wait how many days to get any type of weed you want. But when you want a bud right now, there is now a safe option.
Doors open at 10:00 am on Tuesday and line ups are expected.
Members of Fort William First Nation have said that the pot shop has not been sanctioned yet.
See you all there.
No where in the article does it say chief and council approved the store. I don’t know how you think this is misleading. It even says it’s not sanctioned, according to fwfn members who wished to remain anonymous.
Huge questions about whether or not this pot shop is legal have been raised. The shop claims they will open and stay open. Let’s see how this plays out.
Some people are saying that any weed taken off the reserve may result in criminal charges.
Thr last time the shop was closed, many residents of FWFN were in an uproar as they couldn’t believe how fast CnC acted to close down the pot shop, yet numerous known crack and fentanyl drug houses remain open, selling their poison.
