Morning everyone!

Toronto’s licensing department is planning a crackdown on city pot shops as Vancouver begins handing out fines to unlicensed dispensaries. A UBC researcher believes Canada is poised to become a global leader on the cannabis file and Victoria releases a committee report to regulate marijuana businesses. In lighter news, Woody Harrelson’s application to run a Hawaii dispensary is denied and meet the Columbian lawyer who became the face of Colorado’s cannabis industry. Also, Wiz Khalifa readies for the roll-out of a cannabis-infused beer line and ride along with Conan O’Brien as he hits a vape pen and plays Mario Kart 8 alongside the stoners from Neighbors 2. Have a great day!
