Those visual obstructions were meant to adhere to the Cannabis Act to keep cannabis products and accessories out of the view of minors.
But retailer Nathan Mison said those window coverings compromise the safety of staff by making it easier for robbers to commit their crimes.

“Nobody should be in jeopardy at their work.”
