Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: The city of Peterborough questions whether it will share in the revenue from cannabis reform and police in Quebec City raid a storefront and arrest six in the process. A Saint John lawyer believes charges will inevitably be laid on a city pot shop owner as reports suggest legalization could create a $6-billion industry in California alone. CGC CEO Bruce Linton will feature at the O Cannabis conference in April and VICE explores whether pharmacists are out to take over the recreational cannabis market. Also, researchers in Montreal find weed improves night vision in tadpoles, Jay Z’s protégé talks chronic and Hilary Clinton, and a Brantford driver gets lit up after blowing smoke in a cop’s face at a traffic stop. Have a great weekend!
