Nestled within the Shops of Boudreau is a trendy new retailer. Like its neighbours, the shop is neatly outfitted, the company’s white logo planted atop a clean black awning and cool stone contrasting a modern wooden door. But unlike the others, the windows of this retailer are frosted and host a sign prohibiting minors from entering. This is Spiritleaf—one of St. Albert’s new recreational cannabis dispensaries.
The store is one of several franchise locations across Alberta and Saskatchewan, owned by entrepreneurs hoping to turn the end of prohibition into a budding business. Married couple Jayne and Jason Kent of Spiritleaf St. Albert are two such hopefuls determined to help locals make the most of cannabis culture in a responsible way.
