Morning everyone!

In today’s news: Recreational cannabis will reportedly shake up the black market in Montreal and BC’s health minister says the country’s cannabis conversation must include a medical component. Tweed president Mark Zekulin believes mail order marijuana provides immediate advantages to the legalization movement and consultation on marijuana reform is counted as key to a smooth recreational road ahead. ABcann is vying for a Hawaiian MMJ license and Aurora Cannabis is being called a future low-cost industry powerhouse. In lighter news, DJ Khaled visits with Snoop on the set of Merry Jane’s GGN and Chelsea Handler’s pot-topped docuseries is being called an experiment in celebrity television (... and, yes, it's true I am admittedly a huge Chelsea Handler fan :)
