Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Whoopi Goldberg eyes the Canadian cannabis market in hopes of expanding her treatment for menstrual pains and a UBC study finds CBD does not motivate lazy rats. Police in Toronto are investigating after a robbery at a Queen Street dispensary and Adam Greenblatt hosts the first live stream from Mainstreet TV. GW Weed Emporium will not be opening in downtown Peterborough after all and CNN looks at the knowledge gap that exists between researchers and medical marijuana. Also, the University of Louisville is studying whether hemp can be used as a replacement for fossil fuel, Vogue counts kush cake pops and cannabis bath bombs as the new luxe of the industry, and are police in the UK starting to turn a blind eye to simple pot possession? Have a great day!
