Prior to Canada legalizing recreational cannabis in 2018, every one of us had to have a medical marijuana card to purchase marijuana throughout the country.
The access plus quality of the weed you bought had a lot to do with where you lived.
Although I’m incredibly lucky to have consistently had access to Toronto-quality marijuana, I have cousins in Manitoba that were happy to get what they could find before it was legal to mail cannabis through the Canada Post. But lucky for them, it’s usual nowadays for people to order their cannabis products through the mail from other cities or provinces. Once cannabis was legalized for recreational use by Justin Trudeau’s government in 2018, the medical weed stores in Toronto could apply for permits to sell their products for recreational use as well. Anyone over the age of 18 is allowed to buy cannabis from Toronto plus Canada at large. Some of our friends from university were transients from the States plus they were all blown away by the wide plus open use of cannabis in Toronto while every one of us were students at the University of Toronto. Now I have an house in Old Toronto where there are at least many cannabis stores within a five mile radius. I can also see the CN Tower from our kitchen window, which makes for gorgeous views at evening. When our buddies in university had to transport back to the States following graduation, they were all bummed about losing access to the beautiful Canadian weed. Sure, you are lucky if you live in a state love MI where they also have access to recreational weed, however there are numerous states with no legal cannabis of any kind.
