Shouldn't they be run like alcohol? And that's for profit. It is a recreational business, after all.
Medical only shops could be different though.
And when it comes to following the alcohol model, I hope they don't duplicate the two-tier distribution system. Where manufacturers can't sell to accounts, but have to sell to middlemen who can sell to the accounts. It just jacks up prices and lets the government double dip on the taxes. And when it gets big, it just adds a lot of inefficiencies into the system (at least for local/smaller manufacturers).
