​Here's How Canadian Musicians Are Celebrating Weed Legalization
The day has finally arrived for cannabis-loving Canadians to enjoy the substance legally, and it's hardly surprising to see that plenty of musicians are indulging in the celebrations.
 
The first legal cannabis retailers opened at midnight, and celebratory events are popping up all across the country — many of which feature musical performances.
 
Japandroids and the Dirty Nil are playing the "Up in Smoke Legalization Show" tonight at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto, Matt Mays sparked up a joint at midnight during the kickoff show of Halifax Pop Explosion, and Edmonton-born pot legend Tommy Chong was trying to get to Kelowna to celebrate (but lost his passport).
 
Renowned fiddler Ashley MacIsaac even flew back to his hometown of Cape Breton to be the first in line to purchase weed at the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation in Sydney.
 
In addition to partaking in live events, a number of Canadian music makers have also reacted to the new nationwide laws on social media.
