Canada Has Legalized Weed and Banff National Park is Loving It

10.17.2018 | Culture, Politics

Today, marijuana use is officially green lighted in Canada. The western part of the country, especially around Banff National Park and Vancouver, is highly in favor of the legalization. Who knew that outdoorsy types like to smoke? Everyone. Everyone knew this. Cities opposed to the news all seem to be in the eastern parts like Halifax and small cities in Nova Scotia, PEI, and Labrador.

The public’s view on marijuana consumption has wavered over the past few years. It typically remains close to about a 50/50 split between positive and negative. However, today’s official legalization has sparked about 40,000 posts in the past 24 hours and 56% are joyful and 100% hungry.
