Saskatoon, the largest city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, is relatively late to the legal Canadian cannabis market. While legal dispensaries have been running out of bud in other Canadian cities for months, leading to a nation-wide pot shortage, Saskatoon’s first legal dispensary just opened on Tuesday.

Seeing what has happened elsewhere in Canda, as an onrush of demand and limited supply left dispensaries critically low on supply, the owners of the Pot Shack instituted a temporary purchase limit. Notifying customers in a Facebook post prior to the store opening, the Pot Shack is limiting its sales to one item per customer. They are, however, not limiting the number of grams a customer could buy.

“Size don’t matter” Geoff Conn, co-owner of The Pot Shack, told the CBC. “If we didn’t do that, we would close tomorrow. And that is not an option,” he said.
