Public notices about Ontario’s legal pot shops have been rolling out lately and the latest announcement is that another legal cannabis shop is opening on Queen Street West in Toronto. This downtown location is the fourth to be announced so far, and possibly one of the more interesting spots.
The store is set to be called Hunny Pot Cannabis Co. Honey Pot is a popular brand of cannabis and the name of several other pot stores throughout Canada but based on the different spelling it’s unclear if this new shop is related to any of those. It will be located at 202 Queen Street West, which is an interesting choice for a number of reasons.
This used to be the home of New Era’s flagship hat store in Toronto, but that closed in 2017 amid a lot of shifts in Queen Street’s storefronts. The 3000 square foot space will soon be occupied again though, this time as a legal pot shop. Which could be really good or bad news for the neighbours.
Right across the street from 202 Queen Street is a Friendly Stranger location, a cannabis culture brand that has grown in popularity over the past 25 years. The store sells pipes, vapes, and 6000 different cannabis accessories.
