Ontario cannabis shop sales data circulating, provincial pot regulators investigate

TORONTO —Ontario cannabis stores are seeing their sales data shared among competitors without their approval for at least the second time in a year.

The province’s pot distributor, the Ontario Cannabis Store, and regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, say stores informed them last week that confidential sales data was circulating within the industry.

Spokespeople for both organizations say they investigated and determined the data was not theirs.
