The Big Smoke
On legalization day, Toronto potheads were, in a word, stoked
On October 17, Canada became the second country in the world to green-light recreational marijuana, but legalization day was almost anticlimactic. Cannabis growers, sellers and consumers have been operating in a quasi-legal way for years—especially in Toronto, where dispensaries seem to spread faster than Starbucks. As soon as the online cannabis store went live, it was processing more than 100 orders per minute and struggling to meet demand. Bill C-45 promised a revolution. Instead, it has spawned a banal series of complaints about slow delivery and excessive packaging. How Canadian.
