Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Island Health orders Victoria pot shops to stop selling edibles and a Green Tree budtender says he was left high and dry by the dispensary chain’s owners after he was charged in a recent raid. A McMaster student files a complaint against the university for barring her from a trip over her medical cannabis use and CBC questions whether reform could mean more workplace scrutiny for employers. Former Mountie Ed Secondiak is teaching safe marijuana use in the workplace and the City of San Diego introduces mouth swabs to test for drug-impaired driving. Also, three MMA fighters are sanctioned for pot use following UFC Fight Night 104, a new pro-marijuana church opens its doors in Alabama, and Civilized tours GrassFed’s cannabis cuisine and virtual reality soiree. Have a great day!
