Sometimes I am extremely thankful to live in Canada, where cannabis is 100% legal for everyone. My family and I have lived in Toronto, Ontario for the last 15 years. I’ve lived in Canada my entire life, but I went to the states for University. After I graduated, my boyfriend and I moved to Toronto and started a family. We have been living here since then. One of the best parts about living in Toronto is legal medical and recreational Cannabis. There are several different cannabis dispensaries in Toronto and one local shop is located a few blocks away from the house where my family and I live. My son came home from school and told me that he wanted me to be a chaperone on his school field trip to the Toronto Zoo. I like the Toronto Zoo, but the week was scheduled for warm temperatures and I wasn’t particularly excited about going to the zoo with a group of 12 year olds. I was walking home from the market and I saw the cannabis dispensary on the other side of the street. I decided to go into the shop for a few minutes. As I was browsing around, I decided to ask the bartender if she had anything that might help me on a field trip with a class full of 12 year olds. She laughed out loud and pointed me to the edible cannabis section. She told me that a small 5 or 10 mg edible would take away any stress or anxiety that I would feel on that day.
