Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Dispensaries in British Columbia and Ontario are developing a system to test for cannabis contaminants and Canadian children are being recruited for an epilepsy study with CBD at the University of Saskatchewan. Tweed is participating in the Bank of America Consumer & Retail Technology Conference later this month and a Bracebridge OPP officer is being disciplined for attending a recent cannabis conference. Also, Denver is considering mandatory training for shops allowing on-site consumption, a Massachusetts lawmaker is proposing using the state’s pot revenue to combat the opioid crisis, and Merry Jane meets with the artist behind the trippiest weed colouring books for adults. Have a great day!
