Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Ireland moves ahead with plans to legalize medical marijuana for some conditions and Penticton town council continues to contemplate how to deal with permit-less dispensaries. The Toronto Star questions whether legalization will get voters to the polls in 2019 and Langford mayor Stew Young is upset over the reopening of the Green Tree pot shop. Lift explores the connection between the budding cannabis industry and Dragon’s Den and Jordon Cooper wonders if the tools needed to regulate and control cannabis are behind the times? Also, pro wrestler Matt Riddle says the WWE refuses to sign him because of his pot use, a man in a marijuana-themed sasquatch costume stumbles into a Springfield weather report, and High Times talks to B-Real of Cypress Hill about a career in hip-pot. Have a great day!
