Plans to lift Christmas parties to a higher level will need to be postponed to sometime mid-January.

Then, the province expects consumers will be able to purchase edibles, baked goods, beverages, candies, and oils online.

The legalization process for edibles has taken a little longer due to complications on how to keep them out of the hands of children.
