Morning everyone!

In today's news: A federal court judge in British Columbia rules medical marijuana patients of the old regime can grow cannabis at home and Canopy Growth Corp. releases fiscal Q3 numbers. Tweed rolls-out its line of 10:1 cannabis-infused sunflower oils and Bruce Linton joins Bloomberg TV to discuss the country's transition from a medical to recreational marijuana market. The battle continues to loom over Canada's pending recreational pot industry and public health officials and the Ontario premier worry that private retailers are ill-equipped to handle cannabis sales. Rona Ambrose says Canadians are now more confused about cannabis than ever (and we are!) and three dispensaries in Vancouver overcome approval hurdle and move a step further to legitimacy. In lighter news, Colorado artist Cynthia DeMatteo marries grass, glass and video games and California group Weed 4 Votes hands out 10,000 pounds of grass. Have a great day!
