Cannabis will be legal nationwide Oct. 17. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Tijana Martin

With the legalization of cannabis taking place nationwide on Wednesday, there has been plenty of talk: Who can smoke it? Where can you smoke it? What are the penalties for smoking it illegally?

For many Manitobans, though, there’s one important outstanding question: Where can you buy it?

Throughout the legalization process, details have trickled out slowly about which licensed sellers of recreational cannabis will be open for business on legalization day, and which are coming in the future.
