Same Day Deliveries for Weed in Ontario

You do not need to be Amazon Prime member to get your weed same day in Ontario. Province has announced that they will now allow same day deliveries.

The Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation, or OCRC for short, has started tender process to pick the couriers.

Pricing for deliveries were not announced, but ORCR hopes to cover Greater Toronto Area first , before moving to other areas in Ontario.

This is great news as ORCR has been plagued with horror stories of weed deliveries by Canada Post that never arrive or take weeks to deliver.

This is also good news as Ontario has decided to only launch 25 dispensaries across Ontario making it difficult for some communities to buy their cannabis.

Let’s hope it will work this time around.

Amazon Raises Prime Membership by $2 a Month in the US, not in Canada

Hey fellow Canadians, no worries about recently announcement by Amazon, about their Prime Membership. Fee hike won’t affect members living north of the border.

Amazon is raising prices by $2 USD from $10.99 to $12.99 for their US subscribers starting immediately and will be updated on their next bill cycle. Student members fee will only increase by $1 from $5.49 to $6.49.

Unlike in the US, Amazon Canada charges annual fee vs monthly fees. Maybe this pricing scheme is due to strict pricing restriction in the province of Quebec when it comes to pricing memberships.

Price in Canada is $99 a year and includes free shipping, prime video / music, etc. Amazon says there is no plans to change that:

“We don’t have anything to share with regard to pricing change for Prime membership in Canada.”

Increase or not, people swear by their memberships no matter how much it costs, where else you can order an item at night that shows up on your doorsteps next morning – and you pay no shipping for that?
