This man wants to build the Tim Hortons of marijuana


A Canadian pot entrepreneur wants his chain of medical marijuana stores to reach the same level of ubiquity as famed doughnut shop Tim Hortons.

The businessman, Don Briere, certainly has experience. He was one of the people behind the rise of British Columbia’s famous “B.C. bud,” according to Canada’s National Post, and says he earned millions selling illegal weed in the late 1990s.

“We were outlaws. My share was $5 million a year,” he told the Post (presumably without providing tax returns).

Briere eventually did a few stints in jail, but he’s back in the business at the age of 63. He owns three medical marijuana stores outright and holds at least 50 percent ownership in five more — what he calls “franchises,” according to the Post.

Why the comparison to Tim Hortons? His products are fresh and he prizes customer service. Anyone else imagining a combo store?
