Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Canopy Health Innovations announces the appointment of Marc Wayne as its founding president and U.S. federal data shows teen cannabis use in Colorado has been on the decline in that state since the introduction of legalization. The Israeli army is looking to loosen laws restricting soldiers from smoking weed when off-duty and Gatineau Police announce the arrest of four people in a raid on a pot shop in the city. Advocates in Halifax are applauding the decision of a local dispensary to start selling to anyone of legal age and researchers believe those who space travel may never experience weed the same way again. Also, former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez says medical cannabis is the only thing that allows him to train, James Franco gifts Why Him? co-star Bryan Cranston with grass, and James Taylor cancels his Manila concert in protest of that country’s renewed War on Drugs. Have a great day!
