Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news: Bill Blair believes the minimum age for cannabis use could vary by province and city councilors in Barrie explore the fate of three unlicensed pot shops in the city. New Brunswick liquor staffers want to distribute recreational grass and a new U.S. survey shows seniors with access to cannabis are less likely to file traditional prescriptions. Anne McLellan faces a considerable challenge at the head of the legalization task force and Revenue Canada finds almost $60 million in hidden cash from the same pharmacists who are lobbying for a monopoly on medical cannabis. Also, drug dealers in Rio are selling weed branded with the Olympic logo, The Kind takes a journey through the Apple store of pot shops and Nef The Pharaoh features on a new episode of Merry Jane’s Deflowered. Have a great day!
