A Brampton bylaw looks to boost enforcement around residential grow-ops and California’s legalization campaign could help repeal the sales tax from medical marijuana. The Cannabist questions whether cannabis could revolutionize banking and new Stanford research finds many teens exaggerate their friends’ pot use. Also, a Saskatchewan doctor is accused of trading weed to get his stereo system back, Snoop coughs up his grass while getting roasted by T.I. and Michael Rapaport, and the Daily Mail captures a stunning image of the moment THC molecules bind to brain receptors.
