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.
