Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Ottawa councillor Shad Qadri leaves Stittsville’s new dispensary with the same opinion he walked in with and Tweed’s 24-Hour Strain Name Game winners get the chance to meet Snoop Dogg. Now Toronto traces the planets on a hunt for a dispensary in TO and BNN analysts weigh in on the viability of CGC stock. WikiLeaks exposes big alcohol for lobbying against the cannabis industry and Dixie Brands valuation is set to exceed $160 million. Also, the consultants who helped a South Dakota tribe build the first pot resort are facing possession charges, the world’s smallest bong looks like a toothpick on fireworks and is smoking weed the smartest thing Aldon Smith has ever done? Have a great day!
