Uber And Lyft Are Offering Discounts To Keep High Drivers Off Canada's Roads On Day One Of Cannabis Legalization

The two biggest players in the ride-sharing space are offering discounts in celebration of day one of cannabis legalization in Canada on October 17.

You shouldn't drive high, that's a fact. And it will also be the law when legalization takes effect this Wednesday. So to sure nobody drives high on day one, Lyft is teaming up with the upscale, Toronto-based cannabis accessory shop and cafe chain Tokyo Smoke. By entering the promo code 'TOKYOSMOKE1017,' riders will save $10.17 CAD when riding with Lyft.

Meanwhile, Uber has developed a website telling people 101 things they could do instead of driving high on day one. By visiting the website, you can can get a promo code that will save you $5 on a ride anytime between now and November 11.

Hopefully these initiatives will help keep the roads safe across Canada on October 17.

Latest.

The city of Lawrence, Kansas, is looking to make it so that a marijuana possession fine costs less than a cup of coffee for first and second time offenders. The proposed $1 possession fine would replace their current $200 penalty, as well as a $63 court fee. Those charged under the current regulations also have to undergo a court evaluation, which comes with additional costs.
