But is the popularity of Canada’s new legal marijuana industry likely to trigger a flood of tourists into the country?
One cannabis tourism expert believes it may take a few years, but cities like Toronto could become the “new Amsterdam.”
“Canada is a big draw even without cannabis, as there are amazing natural resources and amazing cities here,” Matt Cronin, founder of Canadian High Tours, said.
“But now it’s just a matter of time for cannabis to become normalized and for people to accept it like they do alcohol, which will take time … and with edibles coming, it’s going to blow the tourism door wide open,” he added.
He said he believes Toronto is going to become the next big global cannabis destination, even taking over Amsterdam’s popularity.
