Well Canada just began legal recreational marijuana sales yesterday and already there’s some bloopers happening.
Ontario Cannabis Store’s online portal made the mistake of mislabeling a cannabis-infused intimate spray called “Fleur de Lune” and marked it to for “sublingual” use which mean orally.
The spray made by Hexo Corp. is meant to be applied on the genitals, “particularly for women,” and is used to reduce such symptoms as inflammation and pain, according to Terry Lake, the Quebec-based company’s vice-president of corporate social responsibility.
“We always knew there was going to be bumps along the road, no country has done this to this extent,” Lake said of Canada’s historical legislation of recreational marijuana.
“It’s a product like many that are used today for intimate areas of the body, but it should be labelled as such … obviously there’s a mistake there that needs to be corrected, so we certainly will be following up with them to ensure that the right information is being given to consumers.”
The product description has already been corrected by the Ontario Cannabis Store after The Canadian Press reached out for comment
Finance Minister Vic Fedeli remarked, “We’ll leave it to the Ontario Cannabis Store to continue to put products out there that the people of Ontario are looking forward to purchasing.”
