Morning everyone!

In today’s news: The Alberta Liquor Store Association is asking its members to consider the sale of cannabis and Joe Oliver says Prime Minister Trudeau is taking an undo-everything approach to policy making. Despite little research in the area, veterans are using medical marijuana to treat PTSD and a Canadian grandmother will be paying close attention to see if pot will be taxed when federal budget is announced. Medical dispensaries are making political donations and Trina Fraser unpacks what the Allard decision means for patients’ cultivation rights. Also, a new VICE documentary follows Snoop Dogg along his foray into Rastafarianism and artist Cliff Maynard makes mosaics of famous musicians out of old roaches. Have a great day!
