Unless you’re one of those weirdos that’s swore off news and gets foreskin facials (I’m not kidding, it’s a real thing…look it up), you’ve probably heard that Canada has passed Bill C-45 and legalized weed. That includes all possession, distribution, and consumption of weed. Canada is now the second country in the world after Uruguay to come to their senses and let everyone get high…legally. One more excuse to get a hall pass and get some grass and ass in Montreal. Besides making Montreal even more heavenly, what does this mean for your Montreal bachelor party? We’ve gone ahead and answered some questions you might have about weed legalization in Montreal.
Can I smoke a joint in public right now?
No, the law will go into effect around early September 2018. Montreal, however, is extremely liberal and you can usually smell the “roses” near any park in the city.
Where will I be able to smoke weed when it becomes legal?
You’ll be able to smoke weed anywhere you can smoke a cig. It’ll make Tam-Tams that much more enjoyable. Outdoor patios? No. Outside the strip club? Encouraged.
How much weed can I carry around?
You can’t walk around like it’s a Snoop Dogg video with pounds of chronic, but you’ll be able to legally carry 30 grams of dried bud.
Is there an age requirement to smoke weed?
You have to be at least 18 to buy and smoke weed. Some provinces are debating to have the minimum age set at 19, but here in Montreal it will be 18. Every member in your bachelor party group will be able to light up.
Where will I be able to buy weed in Montreal?
Just like you can only buy liquor at an “SAQ” (Québec Liquor Store), Québec will control the distribution of weed. The stores will be called SQC (Québec Cannabis Store is a rough French translation for those that actually care.) For all the true lazy stoners out there, you can also have it delivered to you via Canada Post. Doobies and boobies anyone?
How much will weed cost in Montreal?
The government said prices will match black market prices so you’ll buy from them (duh!) It’s hard to know exact prices so we’ll see in September.
