Barrie Marijuana Information

Barrie, ON

Barrie, ON

With a population of about 136,063, the city of Barrie is located on the west side of Lake Simcoe, and is the 34th largest city in Canada. The city is located within Canada’s Greater Golden Horseshoe, which is an area that expands through many Canadian provinces and is where the greatest population densities and economic powers exist in the country. The city was first settled in 1812, but wasn’t incorporated until later in 1853.

The city grew as a trading port, and with their convenient location that hits both Lake Simcoe, and the Nottawasaga River, they had great opportunity to use these moving waters to canoe goods to other trading sites, and vice versa. The city also focused much of their labor efforts in the production of goods that they could then export.

The city also has a rich history of not only progressivism, but also cultural and ethnic diversity. During the period of the American Civil War, the city openly embraced runaway slaves, and was even the final point of one stretch of the Underground Railroad. Once slaves made it to Regina, they knew they had outrun the reaches of American law enforcement, and their former slavers. With this being said, it took a lot of courage and bravery in part of the people of Regina to be so accepting of an entire sect of people who were seen as being less than human.

Today, the city is an economic and cultural hub for the area. Sitting about 56 miles north of Toronto, it serves as a nice getaway for those who endure the 9-5 grind in the big city. Regina also has many theaters, concert venues, art galleries, and museums. With all of these facilities open to the public, there is a great deal of tourism activity in the town, and this helps support the local economy.

Unfortunately, there are no retail medical marijuana shops in Canada, instead they utilize a system where meds are distributed through the mail or by personal delivery. That being said, we haven’t yet started a Barrie dispensary map & directory, but when recreational shops do start opening, we will definitely create one, so keep your eyes peeled for more once the legalization does occur.
