Morning everyone!

In today’s news: Vancouver’s willingness to regulate illegal pot shops is complicating matters for the city’s pioneering dispensaries as the Liberals are urged to move forward - and fast - to fill pot shop power vacuum. Recreational cannabis sales last year generated $5.4 in the U.S., a full half of which may be attributed to edibles. Tweed introduces its new strain name pop culture game and a Sudbury man is hoping to fly a plane made of hemp. Also, 2 Chainz redeems himself for having the worst rap name ever by donating funds from dap rippin’ Christmas sweaters to charity and Wiz Khalifa is launching a new line of cannabis products. Finally, astrophysicists at the University of Hawaii discover THC on a meteorite and a sweet line-up of marijuana-themed phone cases includes a Rugrats theme! Have a great weekend.
