Morning everyone!

In today’s news: The Ontario government doesn’t expect to pack its coffers with cash from the legalization of cannabis and a new study shows teen marijuana use has in fact dropped since recreational weed went on sale in Colorado. Canada’s largest vape lounge launches a video service to connect people to pot docs and debate continues around THC limits for high drivers. A Nanos poll shows only 10 percent of Vancouverites support a ban on edibles as Jodie Emery criticizes councillor Kerry Jang’s reaction to the city’s pot shop issue. Also, an Alberta couple is suing after buying a $3-million former grow-op, Carson Daly gets caught in a hotbox with Ziggy Marley and rapper Cam’ron is readying to release his first proprietary strain. Have a great day!
