A dozen cannabis store licence applicants, who participated in the latest lottery, have been disqualified.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario held a lottery recently for the right to apply for one of the next 42 cannabis store licences.
Those who won the lottery had until Wednesday to submit the documents, and the regulator says 12 did not and were disqualified, while one withdrew the application.
Those 13 are now being replaced by ones on a waiting list.

The agency says 29 applicants provided the required documents which are now being reviewed, a process that includes background and police checks.

The latest lottery means the number of pot shops allowed in Ontario will rise to 75 later this year.
