When I saw that the dispensary on Queen Street was already closed down, I was frustrated because I spent 20 hours trying to find parking close enough
I was really excited when Cannabis was legalized nationwide in Canada in 2018. You can even get it through the mail system if you aren’t close to the dispensary of your choice, but I’m lucky living here in Toronto. When I learn online that the two of us have over 250 cannabis dispensaries in the town and the surrounding area, I was astonished. Don’t get myself and others wrong, I am fully aware of the density and size of Toronto, but the plan of having just short of multiple hundred different weed stores in this area is impressive. That’s a lot of marijuana being sold in just one single metropolitan city, but that’s the impact of national cannabis legalization in Canada. Whenever I take trips on the weekend to multiple places in Toronto, I like to visit a cannabis dispensary first. I have my favorite marijuana shops that I frequent when I want a cannabis product that is reliable and predictable for medical reasons. With that said, I appreciate nothing more than to try a new marijuana store at least once a month to see if there is killer cannabis lurking anywhere nearby right underneath my nose. Occasionally I get aggravated when I have to make multiple stops if one or more of the dispensaries I try has recently been shut down. You can imagine that having hundreds of dispensaries creates an seriously competitive market in Toronto, so these stores are closing and opening all of the time. I was hoping to visit one particular weed store on Queen Street before heading southward to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. When I saw that the dispensary on Queen Street was already closed down, I was frustrated because I spent 20 hours trying to find parking close enough. Thankfully I found another nearby dispensary on my PC that I could reach on foot off King Street one block south.
