Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Canopy Growth Corporation begins trading on the TSX under the WEED ticker and Canada continues to move forward with plans to reform cannabis laws despite concerns the move could impact U.S. relations. Toronto’s new Medical Officer of Health will be tasked with tackling legalization in her mandate and the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba wants Ottawa to take a public health approach to reform. Alaskan regulators consider the prospect of pot use in retail shops and could legalizing marijuana in New York help ease the pressure of the opioid crisis in the state? Also, a disgruntled Australian woman calls the cops over the high price of grass in her community, Urban Daddy promotes a weed bouquet for Valentine’s Day, and The Local tours Italy’s military-run cannabis laboratory in Florence. Have a great day!
