Morning everyone!

In today’s news: A federal document reveals organized crime could infiltrate Canada’s new pot regime as an avalanche of new dispensaries prompt a call for regulation from municipalities. Canopy Growth CEO Bruce Linton joins CBC’s Cross Country Checkup to discuss legalization and will recreational marijuana lead to a spike in impaired driving? Lawyers continue to ask for a stop to pot arrests in light of looming Liberal pledge and Tweed Main Street will help take some of the pressure off the medical cannabis community in Barrie. Also, Seth Rogan and Zac Effron will roll out Neighbors 2 on 5/20 and find out how weed helped save Damian Abraham from a decade of anxiety meds. Have a great day!
