Marijuana dispensaries across town are getting ready to celebrate pot legalization

With less than a week to go for cannabis legalization, marijuana dispensaries are getting ready to celebrate.

Across town stores are holding sales, seminars and even planning for a group light-up.

If you’re a cannabis enthusiast you may want to write some of these down:

Medijuana product sale

Starting today shops across Greater Victoria are having a 30 per cent sale off of most of their products.

The shop sells dried leaves, tinctures, oils, sprays, body care products, vaporizers, resin and more.

Trees Dispensary cannabis educational seminar

Tonight Trees is offering their second of three free education seminars about marijuana.

“Meet with our industry experts to discuss safe consumption, proper dosing, the physiological effects of cannabis, what to look for when you’re shopping for cannabis products, and to address people’s fears about negative experiences and the stigma surrounding cannabis,” Trees said on their Facebook page.

The Higher Learning seminar is tonight (Oct. 11) at 546 Yates St. the from 6 p.m.to 8 p.m.

To learn more, you can head to the Trees Facebook page.
