Toronto Wins NBA Finals To The Smell Of Legal Weed

Toronto wins NBA finals to the smell of legal weed!  On Thursday night the Toronto Raptors won the NBA Finals for the first time in team history. Since 1993, no professional Canadian team in the four major sports—NBA, MLB, NHL, or the NFL—had won a championship until the Raptors victory this season. Suffice to say, Canadians had something to celebrate.

And boy did they celebrate.

Particularly in Toronto where denizens of the city swarmed the streets. Television anchors reporting live from the scene noted the jubilant and festive atmosphere coursing through the Canadian city. But they also sniffed something else in the air. As one TSN anchor coined it, “You can also smell marijuana is legal here in Canada.”

That wasn’t the only insistence of people on the ground feeling a contact high, either.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was instrumental in pushing adult-use legalization in Canada, also joined the fun. No word yet if he also enjoyed the fact marijuana is legal in Canada.

Cannabis in Canada is legal for both recreational and medicinal purposes. Medicinal use of cannabis was legalized nationwide under conditions outlined in the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, later superseded by the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations, issued by Health Canada and seed, grain, and fibre production was permitted under licence by Health Canada. The federal Cannabis Act came into effect on 17 October 2018 and made Canada the second country in the world, after Uruguay, to formally legalize the cultivation, possession, acquisition and consumption of cannabis and its by-products.  Canada is the first G7 and G20 nation to do so.
