For the past four years Matt Mernagh has been hosting a live weekly weed webcast The Mernahuana Zone from Toronto bring your own cannabis lounge Vapor Central.
Mernagh is author of Green Candy Press’s Marijuana Smoker’s Guidebook The Easy Way To Identify and Enjoy Marijuana Strains and has been referred to by Vice as the man who almost made marijuana legal.
Matt assembled a team for a landmark constitutional challenge, R v. Mernagh, which demonstrated Canadians had little access to medical marijuana. His lawyer Paul Lewin and himself were victorious on an optimistic long shot.
Matt is a champion to medical marijuana patients across Canada and around the world, and has parlayed this work into a successful career.
Far from being a one issue guy, with two diplomas (journalism diploma from St. Clair College and creative writing diploma from Humber School for Writers) he’s well educated, and highly aware of the issues affecting the people of this city.
