Higher Limits is closing their doors at the end of 2018.
The lounge, which opened on Ouellette Avenue three years ago provided a place to consume medical cannabis to those who could not do so where they live. This included students in dorms, parents who do not want to consume in front of their children, and many who live in apartments and condominiums who have seen changes to their leases.
According to a press release, owners say that recent changes to the Smoke-Free Ontario Act implemented by the Ford Government now equates consumption of medical cannabis, whether via combustion or vaporization, with that of tobacco and cigarettes.
“While the owners of Higher Limits as medical cannabis users themselves were willing to fight personal tickets advocating for medical rights against discrimination from the province, they have been notified and warned by the Windsor Essex County Health Unit that both employees and customers are liable too, and would be ticketed as well,” the release said.
Higher Limits will be having a closing inventory equipment sale December 27th through 30th.
