Whether you’re hoping to have a night out or learn more about the pot culture, there’s something for everyone.
Jan. 15 (and every Wednesday of the month), 6 p.m., 204 Augusta Ave., Toronto, $5
This venue shows movies each Wednesday in a cannabis-friendly environment (bring your own bud, though, they won’t be selling any on the premises). The event is 19+, and no alcohol will be allowed.
Jan. 16 (and every Thursday in January), 10-11:30 p.m., 670 Queen St. E., Toronto, $10
Enjoy a comedy show at the Underground Cafe 420! Each Thursday, host Ian Fergus will lead you through a night full of comedy with new headliners each week. This venue is wheelchair accessible.
Jan. 25, 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., 477 Richmond St. W., Toronto, $100
If a good old cooking class isn’t good enough for you, then maybe this cannabis cooking class is. Now that edibles have hit the market, cannabis-infused food is all the rage. Learn how to make your own in this three-hour demo. You’ll even get to take the oil (and the food) you’ll make in class to use at home! Attendees must be 19+, and must bring 2.5 g of legally purchased cannabis with them. You’ll also learn how to dose food properly.
Jan. 26, 7-11 p.m., 222 Spadina Ave., Toronto, free (donations appreciated)
Hosted by criminal and cannabis lawyer Caryma Sa’d, drop by the office to catch the WWE’s 2020 Royal Rumble and some free pizza. Admission is free, but a donation of Rexall and Shoppers’ gift cards are welcome to help cover costs. Reservations are required.
Jan. 27, 8-11 p.m., 667 Yonge St., Toronto, $30, $7.50
If you and your friends are hoping to go out for a wild weekend, why not hit up this cannabis karaoke night? It’s a 19+ BYOB (bring your own bud) event that asks you to bring products that don’t require a flame (think: vapes!). So prep your setlist and get ready to rock!
Jan. 28, 8-10:30 p.m, 667 Yonge St., Toronto, $30
Painting with a bunch of your pals and sipping a glass of wine for a night out is getting a pot twist. If you’re hoping to try something new, check out this paint class where you can bring and smoke your own weed! There will be an artist there to guide you along the way so you can go home with a painting you can be proud of (we hope, at least). There will be no cannabis or cannabis products for sale. You must be 19+ to participate.
Jan. 30, 7 p.m., 387 Muskoka Rd. N., Gravenhurst, free admission
Spend the evening at a cottage country brewery (heck, make the whole weekend!) and learn about all the basics of cannabis, like the difference between CBD and THC, indica and sativa, and finally learn what these terpenes are that everyone is talking about. You’ll be able to ask questions and can event take a popup class called Joint Rolling 101. You must be 19+ to attend, and there will be no cannabis available at the event.
Jan. 30 – Jan. 31, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., 25 Watline Ave., Mississauga, $1,550
Put on by NACPT Pharma College, this two-day event aims to help you manage a micro-scale cannabis growing scheme.

Jan. 31, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., 25 Watline Ave., Mississauga, $599
If you’re a professional cook or baker looking to break into the cannabis biz, then this is the workshop for you.
