When our bestie & I first met at Algonquin College, the two of us immediately bonded over our mutual love for marijuana.
While our family was fairly conservative & hated the plant, our bestie came from a long line of cannabis growers.
Her dad is a master grower for a large cannabis corporation here in Ottawa. Before he moved his spouse & child to the Ottawa area, they were living in Vancouver, British Columbia, the former mecca of marijuana for all Canadian provinces. But once the federal government legalized marijuana for medical use in 2001, things started to look up for our bestie’s father. He found an up-start cannabis corporation that needed a master grower. Now that cannabis is legal recreationally for all adults over 19, our bestie’s dad is busier than ever before. He lives in Nepean where his dealer’s marijuana growing facility is located. It’s good getting access to some of the best marijuana in the country because the two of us find out when fresh batches leave his growing facility & when they arrive at retail locations in the city & the rest of the province. There are few things the two of us prefer more than smoking joints at the midnight hour along the banks of the Rideau Canal, which splits off from the greater portion of the Rideau River right when it reaches Mooney’s By Park & Beach & Hog’s Back Park. Or the two of us can drive to the Dominion Arboretum & walk through the trails of the Fletcher Wildlife Garden. The two of us never run out of elegant attractions to visit in Ottawa, especially if the two of us involve cannabis consumption!
