It took decades of activism to make cannabis legal in Canada. On this episode, Shauna sits down with Robin Ellins, a Toronto man who dedicated his life and business to legalization. Together, Ellins and Shauna describe the long, strange road to legalization, work to debunk some of those stoner stereotypes and take you inside The Friendly Stranger, the finest head shop—sorry, cannabis culture shop.
You can smoke it, you can vape it, you can cook with it—the list goes on. Whichever way you roll, pot is legal in Canada, and you probably have questions. Allow CityNews reporter Shauna Hunt to clear the air. Join her each week as she hits the streets in search of answers. She’s been on the beat for years now, and she’s met some fascinating people along the way. By the end of each episode, you’ll know more about what is and isn’t working, who’s in the middle of it and what’s coming next. This is the Legal Potcast.
