Want to visit a place that’s engrained in the country’s history of cannabis legalization? Look no further than Tweed’s Water Street location – the store sold the country’s first batch of legal weedon October 16, 2018.

Buyers Ian Power and Nikki Rose told reporters they lined up to snag the purchase:

“It’s been my dream to be the first person to buy the first legal gram of cannabis in Canada, and here I finally am,” Power said. “I’m elated. I’m so excited, I can’t stop smiling. I’m not cold. It’s freezing cold out, but I’m not cold.”

Halifax has a ton of designated smoke areas, like this one at the Dockyard Clock. There’s no better place to chill than by the water, and the giant lighthouse certainly offers a striking visual. It was built in 1772, and it stands as the only remaining piece from the 18th century navel yard.

Flin Flon used to be a quiet fishing town. But everything changed when Health Canada awarded biotech firm Prairie Plant Systems permission to grow medical marijuana in Flin Flon.

Initially, the $5.7 million deal would have the supplier delivering nearly 2,000 kilos of weed, but security and ecological concerns led to the elimination of the plant. The mine is closed, but the quiet town is still a must-see for hash historians.
