It hasn't taken long at all for Canadian cannabis stores to quickly run out of the product just months after the controversial substance was legalized and hit the shelves.

CTV News is reporting that an expert in the field has already warned the public that it could literally take months before consumers see cannabis back in stores in Canada.

If stores not supplying cannabis wasn't enough, roughly 60 workers in the field have been laid off also, with seemingly no end in site to their current layoff.

The news outlet also interviewed George Robinson, CEO of RavenQuest BioMed Inc, a leading company in cannabis products about his thoughts on the shortage.

Robinson said he believes it could take 5 years before the supply of cannabis and cannabis products will catch up to consumer demands. 

In the face of cannabis shortages in Canada, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, Bill Blair, said he believes that the plan is staying the course.
