Morning everyone!

In today's news: The Globe and Mail reports Bill Blair is calling for strict controls on the recreational market as VICE sates illegal pot shops are blazing a trail for Canadian cannabis. CanniMed receives Health Canada licensing approval to start selling cannabis oils and Privateer Holdings bolsters its banking expertise by making a key hire. In lighter news, UFC star Nick Diaz will soon be back in the ring after his marijuana suspension was reduced and entrepreneurs are using 3D printing to elevate cannabis consumption. Also, Charlie Kaufman discusses legal pot and realism, and North Bay's police chief/my former goalie coach is not down for legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana. Boo this man. Have a great day!
