The first official cannabis store in Toronto opened its doors Monday and the wait was lengthy to get inside.
Located at 202 Queen St. W., The Hunny Pot opened at 10 a.m. April 1. Throughout the day, a lineup of customers wrapped around the corner of McCaul Street, making the wait anywhere from an hour to hour and a half.
“We’ve been waiting in line for 50 minutes, we’re almost there” Katie Lee said. Lee was standing in line with roughly five people ahead of her at 4:30 p.m.
Lee said even though they saw the long lineup, it didn’t discourage them from wanting to see what The Hunny Pot was all about.
“We’re excited, we plan on buying a few grams to try it out.”
Raul Hernandez from Toronto was at the back of the line. “I kind of expected the line to be long but not this long,” Hernandez said. “I want to see if this weed is different from the one I’ve been buying from other dispensaries.”
