On Oct. 17th, recreational marijuana will be legal to produce, consume, and sell across Canada.
While each province will handle the overall governance of the law, nobody will be going to jail for weed. For example, where I live (Toronto), the provincial government has announced that people will be allowed to smoke a joint wherever cigarettes are permitted while in Quebec it’s pretty much a “do it at home” type of thing.
If there’s anyone out here from the Netherlands, Portugal, certain states in the US (or anywhere else a major shift in drug policies has occurred)…what was the overall effect on event organizing? Was a “weed-friendly” environment a benefit or detriment? Was the need for security raised or lowered? Did your snack food budgets have to increase? Or was there absolutely no change at all?
