A second application for a private pot shop in London has been filed with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
A filing on the agency’s website shows the application comes cannabis producer Tweed Inc.
Word broke Thursday that cannabis company Canopy Growth and Quebec convenience store giant Couche-Tard were teaming up to support the location at 1025 Wellington Rd — that’s the same plaza that’s home to Chapters and David’s Bridal.
Londoners have until March 7 to file objections or a submission about the application through the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
Last week, the first application for a recreational marijuana store in London was filed by Christopher Comrie, who hopes to open up a store in a commercial plaza at Wonderland Road and Oxford Street.
The store would be called Central Cannabis and the application with the province’s pot shop is for 666 Wonderland Rd.

The government is only allowing seven pot shops for a large swath of western Ontario that stretches from Windsor to Hamilton and the Niagara Peninsula.
Province-wide, 25 brick-and-mortar stores are allowed to open as of April 1.
