Although I grew up in the North York area of Toronto, my family traveled all over Ontario while I was growing up.
We had cousins in Newmarket, Peterborough, Belleville, Kinmount, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, and Barrie. Usually we would take the Canadian highway system to get from city to city, but other times our parents would purposefully take back roads to turn each trip into a unique adventure. One of my favorite places to visit was Barrie because of it being right on the shores of Lake Simcoe. We would all swim in the lake whenever the weather outside was warm enough for those deep waters. It’s a huge lake that you can’t see across in many locations along the water banks. As impressed as I have always been about Lake Simcoe, my cousins from Barrie were even more impressed by Lake Ontario when they would visit us in Toronto. Now that we’re all adults, my cousins like to drive down from Barrie just to visit one of the many amazing cannabis dispensaries here in the city. There is legal marijuana all over the Canadian provinces, but places like Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal are some of the biggest hot spots in the country for cannabis. There’s a fantastic cannabis store just outside the city limits of Toronto in Markham. This particular cannabis store is located on 16th Ave and there is ample parking in the rear of the building. They have some of the strongest cannabis flower products in Toronto, with some having a THC content over 30%. I’m lucky to find cannabis flower products with over 20%, let alone 25% or even 30% THC.
