Collecting Canada’s new cannabis revenue stamp

Collecting Canada’s new cannabis revenue stamp

Revenue collectors have a new stamp to look for with Canada’s cannabis revenue stamps. The moment the Canadian government legalised marijuana, I knew there would be a stamp to collect. Keep your eyes open for the cannabis revenue stamp that is affixed to all government store sales.

It’s a bit hard to grab a clean photo of the new cannabis revenue. The fraud prevention features play havoc with the lens. My eyes went a bit wobbly after taking a series of photos.  Many weren’t aware the stamp would be issued (or didn’t care) so thousands have been trashed so it’ll be interesting to see what the catalogue price will be for the first issues.

I haven’t decided whether to keep it on the original box or carefully remove it. The box is a bit of a pain to store but I suspect I’ll leave it on. I’ve already started pestering friends to save any revenue stamps they get.  Might be awhile given the pot shortage here in Canada.
