Donnie Wahlberg questions if you can smell the grass in the air at the American Music Awards and a new study finds the occasional pot use of Quebecers is on the rise. Toronto’s police chief is adamant charges laid against city dispensaries will stick and the Global Commission on Drug Policy calls for the decriminalization of all drugs.
