It’s Christmas for pot smokers and while pot has not been legalized yet…dispensaries are popping up all over the city. Toronto police say that dispensaries are still technically illegal. That being said they fall into a grey area until the federal government moves forward with legislation.

3. BUNZ 420 TRADE
This might be a good time to remind you that you CAN get into trouble trading pot on Bunz (Toronto’s online trading community). Cops can decipher your super secret codes “smokables” and “420”. Posting in code in not a legal defence and the absence of money does not make trafficking okay. Just FYI. Sorry to be a bummer.
