Manitobans should find out more about the future of legal cannabis in the province later today.
Justice Minister Heather Stefanson and Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Kelvin Goertzen will be speaking from the legislature at 2:45 p.m.
Global News will aim to livestream the event on our website.
The provincial government rolled out their plan for how legalized pot will be sourced and sold in December.
Municipalities have been given the choice as to whether they will allow retail outlets or not.
Four private companies were given conditional approval in February to sell pot in the province once it becomes legal.
The federal government originally said they wanted weed legal by this summer, but that has since been pushed back.
