Yes We Cannabis!

FIRST ANNUAL YES WE CANNABIS!: A MARIJUANA LIBERATION CELEBRATION OCTOBER 17th 2018 8:00 pm

This month, we are approaching a significant day in Canadian history. On October 17th, recreational cannabis will be legalized for adults in Canada. Many will likely be relieved that they no longer need to hide their marijuana use--the end of prohibition is upon us. As such, The Bookshelf will be celebrating this landmark decision with food, victory speeches, an excellent DJ and, perhaps, a taste of Mother Nature’s bounty in a legally allowed area (Anywhere you can legally smoke tobacco)!

Music starts at 8:30 with Dj Todd Britton. Look forward to a Cannabis inspired playlist including Funk, Reggae, Hip hop, phish and the grateful dead. All your favorite weedy classics and high-time vibes. As Todd says "a playlist 20 years in the making"

I am not advocating that everybody come out, roll a huge joint and blaze themselves into oblivion; there are those who can do this happily and all the power to them. To all you cannabis users out there, as generally safe as cannabis is… it is a drug, please use common sense.

Amazing Caribbean inspired food will be cooked. An industry-leading expert (and Guelph local) will be giving a short speech.

Green Party Leader of Ontario Michael Schreiner will be on hand, with Liberal MP Lloyd Longfield sending his wishes from Ottawa.

Join us for a night of celebration, food, music, drink, and (possibly) a doobie. Tickets will be available for $10.00 at 10:00 am on Oct. 8th in the bookstore. We hope to see you out: get lit! BYOW ;)
