Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Legalization task force point man Bill Blair is under fire for attending a Liberal Party fundraiser with representatives from the Cannabis Friendly Business Association and the opening of a new CannaLeaf dispensary in downtown St. John’s is causing a stir in Newfoundland. At least one Vancouver dispensary is waiting form the green light from Ottawa before opening its doors to patients and D.C. protestors march to Capitol Hill and are invited into a meeting with new Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Also, the U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal from a Native American church seeking exemption from federal pot laws, wannabe thieves in P.E.I mistake a farmer’s hops crop for cannabis and the wife of the late, great Hunter S. Thompson is working with growers in Colorado to release a line of Gonzo ganja strains. Have a great day!
