It's been a long time coming for cannabis to finally get legalized - considering Canada is only the second country in the world to legalize the drug nationwide, it's a pretty big deal. While provinces such as Ontario and Nunavut made headlines after deciding to not open brick and mortar locations just yet, the rest of Canada has been showing off their new cannabis stores and they look remarkably... similar.
Apparently, all the legal pot shops got the memo to include exposed wood and earth tones in their decor. But, even with the locations looking as if they referenced the same Pinterest mood board, it's definitely surreal to think these stores are now 100% legal and backed by the government.

In New Brunswick, no photos or video are actually permitted inside the cannabis stores.

The Yukon shop definitely went about their location in an odd way. Instead of creating a storefront or adding cannabis to their liquor stores, they decided it would be sold out of one warehouse instead.
North West Territories
The North West Territories is another area of Canada that has opted to keep cannibas and liquor together, deciding it made the most sense to carry the now-legal drug in their NWT Liquor locations.
