Growing up in Ontario, our family consistently went ice skating in the winter season.
When I was particularly young there was an outdoor arena in our small town that we’d frequent, but after moving to Toronto the people I was with and I started going to indoor skating rinks around the city.
Most of our friends in middle school and high school would hang out at the ice skating rinks because the cost of admission was so low at the time. There were usually arcades inside the ice skating rinks as well, and we’d often find our friends from school in the arcade, the tiny steakhouses inside, or out on the ice rinks. Even though I’m much older now, I still prefer going ice skating when I can get time away from the job. It’s particularly refreshing feeling the rush of freezing air being on the ice, especially with the feeling of gliding that accompanies it. Recently our lady and I decided to spend our date evening at the Scarborough Civic Center ice skating for a few minutes. But before going to the Scarborough Civic Center, the people I was with and I stopped at a cannabis dispensary near Sherwood Park on Blythwood Rd. We bought disposable cannabis vape pens so the people I was with and I could conceal them heading into the ice skating rink at the Scarborough Civic Center. The people I was with and I decided to take hits off our pens in the separate male and female powder rooms instead of risking it in plain sight. Since they had outlawed nicotine vaporizers in the Civic Center, the people I was with and I didn’t want to press our fortune with our cannabis vaporizers. Recreational cannabis might be legal in Toronto and the rest of Canada, but that doesn’t mean you can use it in any dealer or public spot. There are clear restrictions written into the Cannabis Act of Canada.
