With legalization just two weeks behind us, what better time than Halloween to celebrate this country’s newfound love for cannabis?
Here are 10 costume ideas to help you through the holiday season 👻.
The time for subtlety is over. Let everyone know how much you love weed by rolling yourself into this sweet piece. Not a herb man? Skip the green garland and interject into people’s conversation with matter-o’-fact confidence, like a true master of the blunt arts.
The costume is titled “Dr. Ken Abyss” even though his nametag clearly says “Can Abyss.” It’s a small detail but one that does not instill a sense of trust in this doctor. However, he’ll likely give you and your friends a cannabis recommendation if you tell him you’re 19+.
Ladies! Medicine isn’t just for men. This sexy nurse outfit is the perfect accessory for Dr. Ken Abyss. Make sure to puff some of that silly stuff to induce giggles and really complete the look.
Appropriating other ethnicities via insensitive costumes is a no-no but this Cheech outfit will let you skirt that line while also keeping stoner stereotypes alive. Just make sure you are parodying the character, not a culture.
While you may not have seen this coming, we couldn’t list a Cheech costume without a Chong. So here it is. Don’t have a friend or lover to couple up with? Go solo and try to find your PIC (partner in cannabis, duh) or bastardize a famous quote and run around yelling “Cheech’s not here, man!”
6. Bag of weed
Much like legal weed across Canada, this bag of grass is currently sold out. There are other models available and it seems like a pretty easy DIY. Just make sure you’re carrying less than 30 grams to be compliant!
Nobody loves a joint venture more than the new cannabis industry. This power suit lets people know you love weed for the right reasons and didn’t lose any money in the volatile stock market.
8. Pot leaf
As the first image to pop up when I searched “weed costumes,” it seemed prudent to add it to the list. Add your own flair to this get up with catchphrases such as “let’s be buds,” “I don’t be-leaf it!” and “Happy Halloweed!”
Hey kid—didn’t your parents tell you that weed is legal now?! They must have forgotten. Or perhaps you’re protesting Health Canada’s strict advertising laws with the hopes that cannabis can be as easily marketed to you like sugar and alcohol.
Pay homage to the “soon-to-be-defunct” black market by dressing up like a ganja gangster. Let people know you’re really old school by offering to sell them dime bags for $10 and then switching it out with oregano.
