Morning everyone!

Busy day in the news: New documentary follows Montreal comedian on a tour of Tweed's Smiths Falls plant and Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger plays to our business model by declaring cannabis products “highly addictive drugs.” Meantime, Crown corporations in that province start preparing for recreational pot sales. Winning. Elsewhere, Michigan sheriffs are being accused of spending medical marijuana funds on big trucks and double-wide trailers. Did someone say crack a PBR and crank up the Kid Rock? Also, forget The Hunger Games – the 4:20 Games are said to be promoting fitness and responsible marijuana use! And, the bad news, America tallies its yearly drug war loses and (the really bad news) Rihanna is not launching her own cannabis brand.
