8 Events to Celebrate the Legalization of Weed in Toronto
It’s now just one sleep away; the day we’ve all been waiting for. Cannabis is finally legal.
Naturally, there is no shortage of events taking place across the city to mark this historic day that will no doubt see Toronto up in smoke in the best way possible. Here’s what’s happening in Toronto:
Massive Smoke at Trinity Bellwoods
While hipster haven Trinity Bellwoods has been a prime blazing grounds for years, tomorrow marks the first time the park will legally fill with marijuana smoke. Here, you can expect a massive smoke at 4:20. Just remember to bring your own weed.
Tweed – the country’s largest licensed producer – will take over the Drake Hotel on October 17 with a party in celebration of pot that features local bands, artists, unexpected party perks, and an eclectic crowd.
Over at Love Child Social House, The Cannabis Society will mark legalization day with a young professional-filled affair beginning at 6 p.m. on October 17. Party perks include sponsored cannabis lounges.
If you have an interest in the ever-growing business of weed, hit Brassaii tomorrow night (6:00 p.m. to 10 p.m.) for Graceful Network’s networking event. Here, you can bond over the love of weed with industry investors and owners, cannabis experts, and speakers. Guests are invited to explore innovative cannabis-related products and services.
Popular cannabis website Leafly will host a cannabis eve party tonight at Mod Club. The affair runs 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and features beloved local band Dwayne Gretzky and a crowd that includes some of the city’s finest stoners.
If your idea of ringing in legalization includes a side of reggae, head over to Dundas West’s Lula Lounge on October 17 (8 p.m. to 11 p.m.). Here, Toronto reggae collective David Gang will host a night of musical tributes to legendary musician Peter Tosh.
Queen West’s Friendly Stranger will keep the celebrations going all day tomorrow. The spot will partner with Hot Black Coffee to offer cannabis-related programming and culinary experiences that includes music, promotions, and activities and kicks off with a community wake and bake.
Weed and comedy are pretty much synonymous. So, unite with hundreds of fellow LOL-seeking potheads at Lithuanian House (1573 Bloor Street West) tomorrow for a night of some of Canada’s best stoner comics, food, and music.
