Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Vancouver’s rogue pot shops are flouting city bylaws by keeping their doors open and TIME investigates whether medical marijuana can end the opioid epidemic. Zoning restrictions are among the items of contention as Victoria tries to figure out how to regulate its dispensaries and the medical marijuana programs of both Italy and the Czech Republic are dealing exclusively with Bedrocan genetics. Also, John Malkovich plays a hippie weed dealer in new series, VICE spends the day with California’s cannabis nuns and a retired Democratic congressman says it’s time to end the “stupid drug war.” Have a great weekend!
