    Upon legalization in Canada this fall, Ontario has announced a government-run online retail store will sell cannabis to those 19 years of age and older until a “private retail model” is launched in 2019. Finance Minister Vic Fedeli and Attorney General Caroline Mulroney made the announcement on Monday afternoon ahead of Canadian legalization of recreational marijuana on Oct. 17. “We will be ready to put in place a safe, legal system for cannabis retail that will protect consumers,” Mulroney said in a news release issued on Monday afternoon. “We will also be ready to undermine the illegal market and protect Ontario’s roads.” A vendor displays marijuana for sale during the 4-20 annual marijuana celebration, in Vancouver, B.C., on Friday April 20, 2018.
