Hundreds Of People Are Lining Up Outside Montreal's New SQDC Marijuana Stores

Quebec's new SQDC Marijuana stores are opening their doors Wednesday at 10:00 am but Montrealers were just too impatient to wait that long.

A few brave souls have been camping outside the store located on Peel Street since 4:00am. At first there were more media outlets than people, including several American outlet like NBC.

At 8:40 am there were nearly 100 people outside the Peel location alone. 

Some people brought folding chairs, flags, bongs and of course marijuana.

Apparently a lot of people were smoking weed before the store opened which is weird because that would be like drinking a bottle of scotch while waiting for the SAQ to open.

One woman is taking this opportunity to warn people to repent because "weed will lead you hellfire for all eternity."

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
