Toronto Marijuana Laws
Cannabis is schedule II in Canada (for more than 3 kg). Canada’s cannabis control laws are spottily enforced, with the west coast (British Columbia) being well known for its high quality cannabis and low levels of enforcement. In 2002, Canada’s federal government made several findings in favor of cannabis legalization and medical use approval. Although the status of medical cannabis is still in flux, the Canadian government has several times voiced its intention to support full medical use. Non-viable Cannabis seeds and Cannabis stalks (that do not include leaves, flowers, seeds or branches) are exempted.
Most police in Toronto are educated about where the real harm lies, and won’t charge you unless you are being an ass. Be discreet, be polite, and hope for the best. It really depends on what sort of cop you wind up encountering.
Where to buy Marijuana in Toronto
One option in Canada is to buy from a mail order service. WeBeHigh recommends buyweedonline.ca. Prices are a little more expensive (similar to US prices) and delivery will take 3-4 days, but the quality will be top notch. This is a legitimate service. There are not many risks associated with getting caught receiving personal amounts of weed in Canada. This is the most reliable connection.
If you don’t want to buy cannabis online, alternatively you can check toronto.craigslist.ca. In large cities people often advertise delivery services using craigslist. Search terms like “420, marijuana, cannabis” and you will definitely find some local services.
An old recommendation was to go to the Scarborough Town Centre (reachable by subway). When you exit the train station make a right and walk down the stairs – this is the Scarborough Civic Centre courtyard. There are skater kids all over the place here – ask a few of them and you’ll likely find. HOWEVER. Recent reports have not had much success in this area, it can be hit or miss.
I can recommend the medical clubs in town, but that’s not much help if you can’t get a Dr’s note or aren’t a Canadian citizen. Americans with a medical card issued by their State will be served at the Toronto Compassion Centre, www.torontocompassioncentre.org, or the Cannabis as Living Medicine (CALM) at www.cannabisclub.ca.
Friendly neighborhoods where you can make friends who are holding: Kensington Market and Queen St. West you don’t need to look hard. In Kensington Market, go to one of the Jamaican “Rasta” bars or café’s and just ask. On Queen St. West there are many bars, café’s, small boutiques, record shops etc. If you ask politely no one will get offended and even probably try to help even if they are not into it themselves.
A webehigh user reported on this tip:
walked down to kensington market, bought weed from a really shady bald white guy on a bike in front of the hot box. I usually get my weed from Hamilton which is super strong and I get about a gram per $10. This guy charged me $10 for .7 and it was the shittiest weed I’ve ever had. It barely smells like weed, it burns really fast, and the high doesn’t even come on as strong as the Hamilton stuff, plus it’s a short high. I shouldn’t have trusted a shady guy so I blame myself but I was so desperate. Anyways, be careful!
The nightclubs around Richmond Street or Adelaide Street West, in the Area between Spadina and University Avenue are a good place to look. ”
and: “I found that walking up and down yonge street which is the same street that the hockey hall of fame is on works well. Walk south to the intersection of yonge street and college street (by Toronto University), there is a mission a little further south where you can get whatever you want. Ask the rastas, they will point you the right way.”
“If your new to town go hang around the hostels Located between Richmond St. and Adelaide St. there are always cool people hanging around, usually happy to help you find something, sometimes it is some SERIOUS good stuff!!”
Toronto Marijuana Prices and Quality
Canadian cannabis prices are very cheap compared to many other countries with laws forbidding it. It wouldn’t be uncommon to pay $5/g or less. Obviously quality will be a big determiner of prices. $10 Cdn per gram is reasonable. Hash is a little more expensive.
Local hydroponic is high quality. And the Ontario outdoor shows up around October. Sensimilla (seedless), organically grown, are very popular among the rasta looking locals. BC Hydro – More potent, but the same price as sensimilla.
Great smoke friendly cafes:
Kindred Cafe on Breadalbane St.
