Liquor stores should sell pot: local owner

A local liquor store operator supports the call from private owners and BC Liquor Stores to sell marijuana once the new federal government legalizes it.

He acknowledges some pot shops may object to the industry getting in on the action but he says liquor stores already have the know-how in operating within strict guidelines.
