420 Toronto's all-day smoke-out at Yonge-Dundas Square was wet and wild and a whole lot of fun regardless of the weather.
The 11th annual hash mob bash got rolling at noon with Chris Goodwin (Pot TV/Cannabis Culture) and other speakers including Abi Roach (Hotbox Café), Justin Loizos (Cannabis Rights Coalition) and Marc Emery.
As the Liberals were set to table the needed legislation to legalize cannabis in Canada that week, the mood was extra-celebratory. With live performances running all day, over two dozen canna-friendly vendors and food trucks for when you got the munchies.
There was a ceremonial smoking of a giant doob with 1000's of strangers at 4:20 pm to bid farewell to the final 420 rally at Yonge-Dundas Square. (420 Toronto is moving to a new spot in 2018.)
We were also over at the Toronto Green Market 420 Block Party in Kensington Market in Toronto and the Toronto Green Market people organized an awesome time despite the rain, mud and partial flooding of their venue.
Held at a top-secret location from 11 am to 9 pm, this all-day underground pot party offered a chance to sample up to 30 local craft cannabis products including Alair Vaporizers, Matty's Patties, CannaLove Medibles, Mary Jane's Touch and Green Chef. Comedian Lucy Gervais, Deejay NDN of A Tribe Called Red, Brass Vixens & Goddess factory Twerk Squad performed throughout the day.
