Victoria is pressing forward with plans to regulate the city’s illegal dispensaries and reports suggest storefronts could have to pay a $5,000 licensing fee. In lighter news, singing the stoner anthem “smoke weed everyday” can get you jailed in Tunisia and cannabis-infused red velvet cake could prove the perfect Valentine’s Day recipe. Have a great day!
