Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Canada’s pot czar casts doubt on imminent legalization and recommendations for reform in New Brunswick are expected by fall. Colorado may look to restrict homegrow in hopes of safeguarding against a potential federal crackdown and the head of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office expects federal drug agents to step up enforcement on recreational cannabis. Pennsylvania’s auditor wants to close the gap in the state’s budget with legal grass and Lift calls International Women’s Day a perfect opportunity for the Canadian cannabis industry to reflect. Also, organizers of Vancouver’s 4/20 celebration at Sunset Beach say the event will go ahead with or without a permit, the world’s first cannabis-friendly gym is readying to open its doors in San Francisco, and comedian Tommy Chong and Défoncé chocolates team-up to produce a line of small-dose chocolate edibles. Have a great day!
