You Can Bring Cannabis to Osheaga, but Only If It really is Sealed


Osheaga is normally a single of Montreal’s greatest summer time musical events, occurring in the 662-acre Parc Jean Drapeau.

Rather than try to insist Montrealers, Quebec’s most enthusiastic cannabis shoppers, not to smoke cannabis though at Osheaga, the festival has as an alternative produced only a single demand of attendees: if you bring cannabis, it has to be a legal item purchased at the SQDC (or other Canadian legal recreational seller)—and the package has to be sealed, presumably with its tax stamp intact.

Evenko representative Philip Vanden Brande told International, “We want to make positive that it is legal marijuana and not from the black industry.”

According to a visual guide, bongs will not be permitted either, although it is not clear why. Osheaga’s list of banned products contains “illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia,” which could consequently ban other types of pipes as nicely.

Toronto’s Budweiser Stage has practically the opposite cannabis policy. Rather than permitting legal cannabis containers into the venue, attendees should retailer all cannabis and accessories in see-by means of plastic (either a bag or container), and the festival stresses concertgoers should inform safety they are carrying cannabis. This outcomes in a useful diagram that practically reverses Osheaga’s visual guide.

Sensibly, Bud Stage waives possession limits on health-related cannabis, although it appears all health-related cannabis should be presented in the exact same manner as adult-use products—ie, in a plastic bag.

Rather than permit attendees to enter with bulk cannabis in a sealed container, final weekend’s Toronto’s Festival of Beer decided to ban all loose cannabis or oils, demanding as an alternative that attendees bring no far more than 3 pre-rolled single-wide joints no longer than 70mm.

The TFOB’s cannabis guidelines specify this limit also applies to health-related cannabis.

Nevertheless, any try by safety to enforce that limit on these prescribed far more health-related cannabis than authorized by the Toronto Festival of Beer appears most likely to finish in a human rights complaint.
