Morning everyone!

In today’s news: Canadian judges are questioning why courts continue to prosecute simple possession charges and the Ontario government is applauded and attacked over decision to flip-flop on public vaping laws. Changes to the Smoke-Free Ontario Act could mean the end for Canada’s largest vape lounge and more West Coast dispensaries are making the eastern exodus to Toronto. The COO of Namaste Technologies discusses what legalization could mean for his company and Aphria boosts production and achieves profitability. In lighter news, a guy got high and tried to pelt Donald Trump with a tomato and the seven habits of seasoned cannabis consumers includes good timing. Also, weed trees could play a role in helping the environment and, at the Bud + Breakfast in Colorado, waking and baking is serious business! Have a great weekend.
