Even though pot shops are seemingly on every corner of the city and despite the opening of a nice space to light one up at Exhibition Place, cannabis tourism is not yet much of a thing in Toronto.

Though Toronto has gone from just 12 legal cannabis shops at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to close to 500 now, according to a recent New York Times story, and though it’s true that there are things like personalized tours and cooking classes themed around marijuana for eager tourists who favour bud, these aren’t exactly high times, according to those in the know.

Destination Toronto told the Sun that they’ve only received a couple of inquires in the past four years about cannabis tourism in Toronto.

How often millennials smoke cannabis, and why it matters


The answer may surprise you.

While the general perception about cannabis suggests it is still taboo, the millennial generation is working actively to change this outlook. The millennials have been the pioneers of adult use of cannabis and a big reason why nine states reviewed cannabis reforms since 2012.

Unlike Baby Boomers, Millennials have proven to be open-minded to new experiences, hence, becoming major drivers of social development. Not only is the Millennial generation changing the societal perception about cannabis, but they also contribute a lot to the evolution of the cannabis industry.

The world is back open and so are your favorite bars and cafes. In fact, there might even be a cannabis-infused meeting place coming to a community near you.
