A Special Joint in Toronto

Toronto's Dom Cramer has a calling. His life has been consumed by a culture, and he seems to have found his own way to make money and help the world - one hit from the bong at a time. He opened a tiny hemp and environmental products joint called the Toronto Hemp Company, and it has quickly expanded and evolved into a pot-lover's haven on Yonge St.

A store, a cafe with a volcano vapourizer lounge, and a VIP smoker's patio, and an art glass shop, all aim to point out the "backwardness" of laws governing the use of marijuana in Canada (and the world).

Check out this mini-documentary called Yongesterdam, which takes viewers on a tour of the facilities and explains how it all came to be.
