The Reef
Cannabis supplement

The legalizing of pot is a time of great transformation across the country, including in the cannabis media. The Reef aims to be a fresh voice helping to define the post-prohibition era, with a Canada-focused approach that values cannabis as an interesting and legitimate part of the nation’s social life. Treating pot like anything else a discerning consumer might enjoy—such as music, movies and alcohol—the implied message will confront cannabis stigma. The fight to “legalize it” has been won. Now The Reef will remind people it’s OK to enjoy it.
