Although my father is from southern Michigan, he moved with my mom back to Windsor to be close to her parents.
Windsor is where my parents raised my sister and I, but I was eager to get out from early childhood.
We had cousins further north in Ontario in the city of Mississauga, as well as family back in southern Michigan between Jackson and Kalamazoo. Since I’ve been able to travel back and forth between the lower peninsula of Michigan and southern Ontario, I have sampled all sorts of different kinds of weed, both indoor and outdoor grown. While Canada legalized recreational cannabis nationwide in 2018, Michigan became another state among many in the U.S. to also legalize recreational cannabis in the same year. Between both places where my family lives, I have my choice of really good strains of marijuana. I find that I can locate more exotic strains at the cannabis dispensaries in Toronto, probably from the sheer volume of storefronts within the city limits. I wanted to find some classic landrace sativa strains because I was coming up short while visiting family in Michigan. When I got back to Toronto, I opened an app on my phone that I use to locate dispensaries and specific cannabis products and strains. I had to drive a few miles east of Kensington Market to get to the dispensary that claimed to have Columbian Gold in stock. I left happy with a jar of some of the most potent smelling cannabis that I’ve had in my entire life. Then I looked for a classic indica like Hindu Kush which is a parent of the classic Bubba Kush. My dispensary finder app took me to the great location nestled in a small storefront in York. With over 200 dispensaries in the city, I can’t think of a better place to live if you’re a cannabis enthusiast.
