CANNABIS Toronto is getting the first legal cannabis consumption patio The "potio" will be featured at Ontario's annual craft beer festival by Piper Courtenay The Toronto Craft Beer Festival is set to host the first official legal cannabis consumption patio since legalization in October of last year.

While both federal and provincial governments haven’t quite worked out how to legalize brick-and-mortor weed consumption lounges yet, Ontario is certainly testing the market.

The Toronto Craft Beer Festival announced today (March 12) it plans to include a legal cannabis-friendly zone at its upcoming event in June.

The annual expo highlights the best of Ontario’s craft brew offerings and sees over 10,000 attendees, all sipping on homegrown suds—no Big Beer allowed. This year, if guests find they’ve shotgunned a few too many salted caramel stouts or rhubarb saisons they can kick back with a come-down joint, or forgo the taps all together, on the aptly named “potio”.

The provincially-backed event will make history as the first legal age-gated consumption lounge open to the Canadian public. The sesh section will be designed by Detonate, a cannabis branding agency, and hosted by Abi Roach—founder of the Kensington Market weed hub, the HotBox Cafe.

“We want to offer people a place to come down from the beer. You don’t have to consume cannabis to experience our creative, chill, and vibrant potio,” says Roach in a release.
