The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) announced plans Sept. 1 to increase the number of new dispensary approvals that can be issued each month.

The AGCO began issuing up to 20 Retail Store Authorizations (RSAs) per month in April and has issued 164 retail store authorizations to date. Currently, 150 dispensaries are open in the province.

Now, the agency will move to double the pace of new dispensary approvals this fall, according to its recent announcement.
