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 and quality of the weed you purchased had a lot to do with where you lived.
Although I’m incredibly blessed to have constantly had access to Toronto-quality marijuana, I have cousins in Manitoba that were cheerful to get what they could find before it was legal to mail cannabis through the Canada Post. But blessed 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 and Canada at large. Some of my friends from university were transients from the States and they were all blown away by the wide and open use of cannabis in Toronto while every one of us were students at the University of Toronto. Now I have an condo in Old Toronto where there are at least numerous cannabis stores within a many mile radius. I can also see the CN Tower from my bedroom window, which makes for gorgeous views at night. When my buddies in university had to transfer back to the States following graduation, they were all bummed about losing access to the good Canadian weed. Sure, you are blessed if you live in a state love Michigan where they also have access to recreational weed, however there are several states with no legal cannabis of any kind.
