Your Local Guide to Weed in Squamish
So, you’ve arrived in Squamish, with a laundry list packed with outdoor activities. But, one item is still left unchecked—where can one buy weed in this adventure town?
You know that weed is legal in Canada, so, it should be simple, right? The short answer is: yes. Read along to learn more about weed delivery in town as well as the laws in place.
Hold Up, Where are the Dispensaries?
While the Cannabis Act made it legal for adults in Canada to possess, grow, or use cannabis recreationaly, provinces and municipalities have the power to impose their own rules and regulations.
Currently, the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) is taking an incremental approach to the regulation of cannabis. And the process for retail stores and dispensaries to obtain provincial approval has become muddled and complicated. Hence, the dwindling number of brick and mortar stores in town due to recent closings.
But, all hope is not lost; if you’re looking to obtain that BC bud you’ve been hearing about, what better way to enjoy weed than to have it delivered to your home while you relax.
