Morning everyone!

In today’s news: A group warning of marijuana’s effects on young people begins a four-city tour in Halifax and the Toronto Star questions whether recreational cannabis could help pave the way for new Canadian sidewalks. Adam Greenblatt reports that dispensaries and licensed producers have the same goal as a trade group representing LPs calls on Ottawa to stop the proliferation of pot shops. The family of Liam McNight continues to wait on extracts approval and Sheila Block examines how legal cannabis could help bolster Toronto’s bottom line. In lighter news, visit a green-themed gala for a look at the future of cannabis culture and meet ultra-marathoner Avery Collins, who says grass helps him run 100 miles at a time! Have a great weekend.
