Canada all set to become a major competitor for weed tourism

Published on : Friday, January 11, 2019

With recent changes to federal drug laws, Canada is all set to be a major competitor for weed tourism. Keenan Hall, founder of The Movement Cannabis Tours, is of the opinion that B.C.’s history and retail landscape place Vancouver in conflict with internationally renowned pot hot spots like Amsterdam and Colorado.


“I think Vancouver is probably one of the best places in the entire world to have a cannabis experience,” Hall said.


“The activists and events that took place in this city are integral in how we got to legalization,” Hall said. “Sharing those stories is how we push forward.”


Hall launched a tour company in October last year, just a week after the country welcomed a new framework for cannabis law. He has led walking tours around the city – all aimed at debunking myths, unpacking the drug war and clarifying regulations.


Hall said, “I called it The Movement Tours because I’d like to support a normalization movement across the world by giving tourists a chance to try it in a safe and comfortable setting.”


Hall led his first recreational-themed tour on January 5. Now that Vancouver has legal dispensaries, the curated shopping trip provides guests a chance to exercise their newfound purchasing and consumption rights.


Each tour also includes a breakdown of public-consumption laws, ensuring that anyone who chooses to spark up does so in a legal area.
