Victoria readies to crack down on the city’s non-compliant pot shops and 10 percent of Manitoba drivers who participated in a voluntary roadside survey test positive for drug-impaired driving. Workplace safety advocate Ed Secondiak urges caution as the government in Ottawa moves to reform the country’s cannabis laws and the Washington Post says police shot a man 57 times over $100 worth of grass, then lied about it. Also, rapper 2 Chainz announces he’ll be headlining the Denver 420 Rally, Wiz Khalifa remixes The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” into a summer stoner anthem, and find out why Woody Harrelson stopped smoking weed after 30 years. Have a great day!
