Vancouver is the most populous city in the province of British Columbia with approximately 647,540 residents in the city and about 2.4 million in the greater metropolitan area. Surrounded by mountains Vancouver is a bustling and beautiful seaport city and is among Canada’s most ethnically diverse cities. Smoking weed in Vancouver is very common and the city has quickly become known as the Amsterdam of North American and is sometimes jokingly referred to as “Vansterdam” by the locals. The province’s many hills and forests, inexpensive hydroelectric power, and abundance of water and sunshine make it an ideal area for growing cannabis. The headquarters of registered political party the Marihuana Party of Canada is located in the city and has run candidates in elections provincially and federally with “Overgrowing the government” as their official motto.
In the year 2000 Canada became one of the first countries in the world to rule that its citizens have a right to use cannabis for medical purposes and because of the “safe space” laws people are able to bring their own marijuana to various locations to enjoy their weed in Vancouver. The British Columbia cannabis industry is worth an estimated $6 billion annually and produces 40 percent of all Canadian cannabis which makes the plant among the most valuable cash crops in the province. The federal government led by Prime Mister Justin Trudeau has planned to make cannabis fully legal in the country by the 1st of July 2018, which has led to an increase in cannabis stocks. Thanks to the relaxed attitudes towards weed in Vancouver, cannabis tourism is also increasing in the city.
