Cannabis Watch: Canada’s pot party: Big demand, short supply, and stamps with no glue

TORONTO—The final sprint to this week’s launch of legal recreational marijuana sales in Canada can be summed up by a small stamp.

To sell any marijuana product in Canada, the government requires a tax stamp on the package, but the stamps are only available from a single licensed vendor, the Canadian Bank Note Company Ltd., or CBNC. Once the pot producers dealt with CBNC to receive their stamps, they were likely dismayed to find that the stamps had no glue on them — and there was only one company in Canada that could affix glue to the stamps.
