Shoppers Drug Mart Applies for 3rd Marijuana Supply Agreement

Shoppers Drug Mart has lined up a third cannabis supply agreement as part of its ambition to dispense the drug amid what experts say is increasing support among pharmacists to distribute medical pot and expectations that the regulatory framework needed will come to fruition.

The latest deal, announced Friday, is with B.C.-based licensed marijuana producer Tilray Canada Ltd. to supply branded medical cannabis products and is conditional upon Health Canada’s approval of Shoppers’ application to dispense medical marijuana.

A spokesman for Loblaw Companies Ltd., Shoppers’ parent company, said it could not speculate on if, or when, it will be approved. Loblaw first applied for a licence in 2016.
