Two new Cannabis Culture recreational marijuana dispensary locations are open for business in Toronto – one at 1205 Queen Street West and another at 121 Montezuma Trail in Scarborough.
That brings the current number of CC dispensaries in Toronto to six, as our Eglinton Street location was forced to close last month. Cannabis Culture has a total of 12 locations across Canada. See the full list of CC locations with maps and hours.
Though Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ran on an election platform that called for the full legalization of marijuana, and even said dispensaries should be allowed to remain open, he is now urging police to go after pot shops.
CC’s dispensaries remain illegal under federal law.
Police have raided several CC locations and arrested and charged staff, including two weeks ago in Port Coquitlam where police seized products and computers but made no arrests. Cannabis Culture’s Hamilton store was visited by police last week but officers left after the owner agreed to a future meeting with the drug squad.
