Ontario Cannabis Store Restarts Deliveries After Cyberattack

The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) has restarted some services following a cyberattack that
shutdown the provincial marijuana distributor.

“A small number of deliveries from the distribution centre will be made later today, beginning
with the delivery of the orders that were impacted at the time of shutdown,” said David Lobo, the
OCS’s chief executive, in a written statement.

The OCS is supported by the Ontario government and sells cannabis to consumers online
through its website. It is also the province's only cannabis wholesaler, providing product to more
than 1,300 licensed retail stores.

Since the OCS disclosed the cyberattack on August 5, several Ontario cannabis retailers have
said they are in danger of running out of product, potentially pushing consumers to the black
market for the recreational drug.

To compensate retailers for the shutdown, the OCS has said that it will waive retailer delivery
fees until September 30, as well as the $500 processing fee for an emergency order between
September 1 and March 31 of next year.

The OCS has said that no customer information was compromised by the cyberattack.
