Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: A new Nanos poll shows Ontarians favour the LCBO for recreational cannabis sales and a Coquitlam woman says she’s dealing with $135,000 in damages from a rental property grow-op. The Lift Cannabis Expo is ready to invade Vancouver September 17 and does Patent 6,630,507 illustrate the American government’s hypocrisy on the cannabis file? Barrie police raid two city dispensaries and a New Brunswick lab is hoping to expand its operations after legalization. Also, rapper The Game buys a stake in a Santa Ana dispensary, VICE explores the science behind weed colours and Emerald Exchange looks to marry the Cali cultivation ethos to a medical marijuana farmer’s market. Have a great day!
