Morning everyone!

In today's news: A dispute is brewing between Canada’s pharmacists and pot producers and employers still have the right to prohibit cannabis use in the workplace. A new report shows marijuana may help to curb alcohol abuse and the gang violence will continue in Surrey if measures aren’t taken to regulate marijuana. The buzz behind Canada’s budding cannabis business starts at Tweed’s Smiths Falls facility and a Vancouver property is readying to host one of the city’s largest dispensaries. A General Mills billboard in Denver is promoting pizza rolls for 4/20 and the New York Times looks at some ridiculously long sentences for pot crimes. Also, Victoria is the first Australian state to move on medical cannabis and watch the new video for Wiz Khalifa’s “Elevated.” Have a great day!
