The head of the country’s legalization task force is expected in Western Canada to speak on reform later this week and Nanaimo looks at where it stands on the issue of unlicensed dispensaries in the city. Canopy Growth Corporation renews its engagement agreement with XIB Consulting and Emerging AgroSphere ETF plans to launch an exchange-traded fund to profit on cannabis. Also, the ‘Godfather of Grass’ John Robert Boone continues to be held in Montreal under deportation order, Merry Jane looks at 20 things that can be done with Colorado’s $1.3 billion cannabis tax bonanza, and the winner of the ‘Big Lebongski’ bowling tournament takes home a bowling pin glass bong trophy.
