Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: A monthly workshop north of Toronto is helping seniors navigate the world of medical cannabis and the Colorado town of Parachute is getting the state’s first drive-through pot shop. Marijuana advocacy group NORML makes a nationwide push to prevent drug tests in the workplace and medical cannabis use is on the rise in American retirement communities. A Toronto dispensary owner believes police went above and beyond the call on pot shop raids in the city and medical marijuana will soon be up for public comment in South Africa. Also, hundreds of couples line up for the second year of the Cannabis Wedding Expo in Portland, VICE’s “Bong Appetit” looks at the Top 5 weed-infused dinners, and Juicy J talks weed and touring with Canadian rapper Belly. Have a great day!
