Toronto’s budding pot tourism industry must overcome hurdles to become lit

Submitted by Marijuana News Pot tourism could be the next big thing in the Big Smoke. But the budding bud-based tourism industry in here has barely caused a blip yet. Less than a year after cannabis was legalized in Canada, growth in new weed-based tourism in a largely smoke-free city once dubbed Toronto the Good is expected to come in fits and starts, according to some local entrepreneurs who have already dipped their toes into what is essentially a niche business. “As with all new things, we suspect the uptake will be steady and slow to begin with,” said...

Submitted by Marijuana News One pesky stamp has become the symbol of a continuing problem in Canada: Pot producers struggling to get enough cannabis to market, at least in the ways that buyers want it.
