Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Canada’s unregulated pot market is reported to be putting consumers at risk and should medical marijuana laws allow pharmacists to dispense cannabis? Minnesota’s chronic pain patients can now buy medical marijuana with ease and the Kennedy group puts up $2 million to fight legalization. Hamilton’s Brighter Moments Dispensary closes up shop, for now, and Andre Picard believes cannabis should have consumer protection standards. Also, Olympic athletes in Rio can blaze, just not during competition, Snoop readies to executive produce a new pot TV show Mary + Jane, and could cannabis be the secret to Ryan Reynold’s success on the big screen? Have a great day!
