Morning everyone!

In today's news: Justin Trudeau says cannabis will not be a cash cow for the federal government as he visits Vancouver city hall to discuss pot policy with Mayor Gregor Robertson. Aphria doubles sales, OrganiGram posts a strong fourth quarter and Lift Cannabis readies to launch its first resource centre in Brampton. Rolling Stone proclaims 2015 will be the year marijuana goes mainstream as, tragically, four people face the death penalty in Malaysia for trafficking two kilograms of grass. In much lighter news, a TV anchor fired for her pot activism is a finalist for Oregon's person of the year and Star Wars star Carrie Fisher is shocked to learn there is a strain named after her. Have a great weekend!
