From Oscar Wilde’s nights with the absinthe “green fairy” to Coleridge’s crippling laudanum addiction, writers’ relationships with mind-altering substances have been a source of intrigue for centuries. Here in Canada, our cannabis consumption already rivals that of our wine, with an estimated $6 billion spent on the ubiquitous herb every year. On the first day that marijuana is legal in Canada, favourite local and international authors take to the stage in an open-mic event to share their harrowing, hilarious or downright trippy stories about Mary Jane. We won’t be selling grab bags of chips, but we do guarantee you’ll get the giggles during this playful story swap.
