Even though I have lived in northern Ontario for all of my life, I have never been to Niagara Falls.
We learned about the international falls in school, where one portion lies in Canada and the other in the United States.
They’re both gorgeous and terrifying, in no small part to the number of people who have died in Niagara Falls in the past few centuries. However, there is no need to fear visiting the falls because there are numerous safety measures and protocols put into place to prevent people from having fatal accidents. One thing I wanted to do before driving down to Niagara Falls was to stop at one of the many cannabis dispensaries in Toronto. Although we have marijuana stores scattered around Ontario from one border to the other, Toronto has hundreds now that recreational cannabis is legal throughout Canada. I wanted to buy cannabis edibles and flower buds, so I looked at the Leafly website and found a few dispensaries in Old Toronto to visit before getting on the Queen Elizabeth Way and driving southwest. The cannabis proved to be much stronger than I was initially expecting. I actually had a feeling of vertigo just looking at the falls from afar, and I immediately began to worry that maybe I should take it easy before approaching too quickly. By the time I reached Falls View on the Niagara Parkway, I had to park the car and calm my nerves a bit before stepping outside. After 30 minutes, I finally felt comfortable enough to go to the viewing location for the majestic Niagara Falls. I need to be careful when I buy marijuana in Toronto, especially if I’m going to consume it before going to a naturally terrifying place like Niagara Falls.
