Barrie is one of the first 14 cities in Ontario where government-run marijuana stores will open.
The LCBO says the stores will open by July 2018.
However, they have to still determine exactly where the Barrie store will be located.
The province plans to set up approximately 150 standalone cannabis stores by 2020. The first batch of 40 stores will open in 2018 with that number rising to 80 stores by July 2019.
