Puff, Puff, Pass: Everything You Need To Know About Weed Legalization In Montreal

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.

The Best Summertime Montreal Events For Your Bachelor Party

Montreal has events going on every weekend during the summer to make up for its freezing winter (If it weren’t for summer, we would have been in South Beach long ago). Most events are located downtown or an Uber ride away so they are accessible no matter the size of your bachelor party. Here are the four best summertime Montreal events for your bachelor party:

Grand Prix (June 8-10)

Montreal’s Super Bowl takes places every second weekend in June. If you actually care about F1, most people don’t, the big race takes place on Sunday afternoon. Trials take place on Friday and Saturday.

Now, for the information people actually care about: the partying. The city comes alive starting Thursday with outdoor festivals and bars, but so do the prices. If you partake in the festivities, be ready to pay Vegas prices at any night club in the city. You’ll be rewarded though with one of the most fun weekends of the year. Everyone is here to p arty and have a great time so the atmosphere only adds to a bachelor party weekend.

Jazz Fest (June 28-July 7)

Montreal’s Jazz Fest is the largest jazz fest in the world and for good reason. The festival runs for a week and a half with concerts from noon to midnight. It’s ideal for a bachelor party since most of the free concerts take place in Place Des Arts, which is at the heart of downtown and where you should be staying anyway (If you’re staying off the island, stop reading immediately).

Just For Laughs (July 11-July 29)

Just For Laughs has become a mainstay on Montreal’s summertime event calendar. The two and a half week festival brings in big names such as Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, and Trevor Noah. There’s also great shows, especially the Nasty Show, that is ideal for bachelor parties. There’s no better way to get the night started then going to a Just For Laughs show. If you are in town during JFL, you have to go to at least one show.

Osheaga (August 3-5)

Canada’s answer to Coachella happens every first weekend in August and is a 15 minute Uber ride away from the downtown core. They have all sorts of different music from electronic to rap to rock from big headliners to no name bands. Osheaga is a great daytime activity for a bachelor party and it’s easy to snag day passes. Just leave the flower headband to your future ex-wife.
